A former Laval University “Rouge et Or” mid-distance track and field athlete (800 m–1,500 m), Benoit Didier discovered trail running in 2022 with the UTHC 42 km Classic and the Bromont Ultra 55 km. After these two races, he was hooked!

He clearly has the legs for it! He won that first trail race, the UTHC 42 km Classic in 2022, and took 2nd at the Bromont Ultra 55 km. That year, he also participated in Les Découvreurs à la Course, a fundraiser for Opération Enfant Soleil, on a nearly 60-km course that connected all the primary and secondary schools of the Découvreurs School Service Centre. 

The UTHC 42 km Classic will be his main goal for the 2023 season, where he’ll be looking to reclaim his title for a second consecutive year.
