Trail 20km – Night duo

A special night race! 

This is the same UTHC 20km course, but is to be completed as a team, and takes place at night! The teams must follow and support each other through out. This is the concept of this race, which is meant to be friendly and different from the challenges athletes are used to.

Classification will be awarded by team and not by individuals. Reference times for this night race are slightly higher.

Warning: additional compulsory items are required on this route to ensure the safety of athletes.

Details of the race

The new 20 km night duo race on Mont Grand-Fonds’ snowshoeing and ski trails mixes up singletrack, wider moss-covered paths, and a few short hill sections, making it both accessible and surprising!
