One of the Toughest Races in Canada. Start from the magnificent town of Baie-Saint-Paul. The first portion of the race goes along the St. Lawrence River to La Baie, Gabrielle Roy Est, Louise-Gasnier and Gabrielle Roy Ouest trails to Ligorie peak. Then, the route follows almost entirely the old Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix to Saint-Tite-des-Caps town. From this point, runners will cross the Dale Humide trail which witnesses of the Quebec’s logger era. Joining the canyon of the Sainte-Anne river, the infamous Mestachibo trail awaits participants as far as the majestic Jean-Larose waterfall. The colossus Mont-Sainte-Anne (MSA) will follow, which will have to be climbed almost twice. The last 40 kilometers take place at the north of the mountain on the edge of the mountainous Laurentians terrain until the return to the South base of MSA.
