FAQ

TRAIL TECHNICAL LEVEL

The 2km and 6km will be runnable despite the ups and downs. The 12km and 25km will have hills that only a few may run. The 55km, 80km and 160km have enough positive altitude change and technical difficulties that only a handful might be able to run them at 100 %. There’s nothing wrong with walking!! 😉
Under the American toughness rating that some follow, we believe our trails would be rated as “4 / 3”.  Which means: 4 = hilly, total climb between 50 and 150 feet per mile (7500 – 10 000 feet in 50 miles) and / 3 = trail or dirt road with some rocks, roots, and/or ruts.

AID STATIONS

For all distances, except for the 2km, there are major aid stations and minor aid stations (water only). Some unique delicacies will be offered to you but always respecting the fact that you are in the middle of a race. Each station will also have the usual aid station menu of fruits, potatoes, cookies, etc…

For cycling, the markings used are blue flags and ribbons.

Participants can choose to change their race distance. There is no reimbursement for a shorter race and you will need to pay the difference in the case choosing a longer distance!

BIB TRANSFERS NOT ALLOWED

THERE IS NO REFUND EXCEPT…

Some exceptions do arise such as for injuries. In that case, we usually just give you a 100% credit for the following year.

If you get COVID 19, you get 100% credit for 2021 or 85% cash reimbursement. (the 85% is on the registration part, not the donation portion)
