QMT's premier event has earned its place amongst America's legendary 100 miles races. It starts from the magnificent town of Baie-Saint-Paul. The first part of the course runs along the St. Lawrence River and takes the La Baie Trail, Gabrielle Roy Est, Louise-Gasnier and Gabrielle Roy Ouest trails to Mount Ligorie. Then, the route follows almost entirely the Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix Trail to the village of Saint-Tite-des-Caps. From this point, participants cross the Dalle Humide, a trail that bears witness to the era of log drivers. Then, the infamous Mestashibo Trail awaits, leading participants through the Sainte-Anne River Canyon and towards the majestic Jean-Larose waterfall. This will be followed by climbing the colossal Mont-Sainte-Anne (MSA) almost twice. Finally, the last 40 kilometers run north of the mountain, bordering the immense mountainous terrain of the Laurentians until the return to the southern base of the Mont Saint-Anne.Register Horaire
To register the runner must have completed an ultra trail race with a minimum of 85 points by applying the following calculation: 1 km = 1 point | 100 meters of elevation gain = 1 point. Example: A 60 km race with an elevation gain of 2500 meters is equivalent to: (1 X 60) + (2500/100) = 85.
No discipline other than trail running is accepted (A backyard ultra on a dirt road is not a trail race).
