I've been given a fantastic opportunity to promote a new race in the east coast of canada near where I live, and I'm super excited. I first raced in Gaspesie in 2014 and have wanted to go back ever since. The Gaspesia 100, is an ultra trail event that starts in Perce, QC, home of the famous rock formation seen below.
The race is part of back to back weekends of races which include a Gran Fondo, a road Marathon, an MTB 100 mile race and the Ultra Trail race. The Ultra Trail offers a variety of distances from 6.4k to 157k. It is new this year, but appears to be primarily single track, with some technical sections and a few big climbs, although not overly mountainous based on the course profile. Much of the race is near the coast line however and is sure to be rugged. I'm going to try to make it up to scout the trail before the race at the end of August and will share some photos when I do. If you even remotely interested in one of the races that are part of the Gaspesia100 series, let me know as I can offer you a discount.
