Trail coureur des bois - Races

Races

New for 2024: A new 48K race!

For this 10th edition, nearly 2000 runners and walkers will venture into the magnificent wilderness of the Duchesnay Tourist Resort.

The 48 km route with a positive elevation gain of 1530m combines several beautiful trails of the Duchesnay Tourist Resort, in addition to offering views of Lac Saint-Joseph and Lac Sergent. The race begins with a mix of cross-country ski trails and forest roads. From Lac Jaune, participants will join a 26 km segment consisting mainly of “single track” trails. Then, they will tackle an entirely new and unprecedented segment that includes several very demanding uphill and downhill ridges. Trail enthusiasts seeking a more technical challenge will find rocky and tough terrain between km 38 and km 40.

Our event is sanctioned TRAIL by the Fédération québécoise d’athlétisme.

For this 10th edition, nearly 2000 runners and walkers will venture into the magnificent wilderness of the Duchesnay Tourist Resort.

You’ll start off on the same trails as the 8K, but you’ll split out of the loop at the La Halte hut to link up with the Coureur des Bois trail (number 58). You’ll climb for about 2 km before starting a gradual descent. When you reach kilometre 8, you’ll link up with the winter cross-country ski trail, which is wider, but not necessarily any easier. This will lead you back to La Halte, where you’ll link up with the 8K loop again.

Our event is sanctioned TRAIL by the Fédération québécoise d’athlétisme.
