UTHC on a hike
Do your families and friends want to get moving during the UTHC weekend too? Or maybe you want to get the kinks out before or after your race? Come climb Mont Grand-Fonds! The 3 km path with 300 m of elevation gain to the summit (6 km in all) takes you to a breathtaking view of the Mont Grand-Fonds regional park and the surrounding area.
As a bonus, when you participate in this hike, you will be helping us pay for compensating the GHGs produced by our visitors’ and participants’ trips to get to the event. You’ll also be entered in a draw to win one of many participation prizes, such as items from the boutique, registration to our events, surprises from our partners and more!
The trail will be open from Friday noon until Sunday 3 p.m.
The entrance fee ($10, taxes included) is the rate typically charged by Mont Grand-Fonds to maintain this trail, which is part of the famous 5 Summits Challenge in Quebec. *Free for ages 11 and under.
