Winner of the 2022 Extremely-Path Harricana’s 125K ladies’s race, Edmonton’s Priscilla Forgie spent a number of moments on the bottom this weekend. “I used to be joking with a good friend that I’ll have spent simply as a lot time on the paths vertically as I did horizontally,” Forgie shared on Instagram. “In between all of the cursing and whimpering, I made positive to not take myself too critically.”
It was Forgie’s first time racing UTHC, ending in 17 hours, 37 minutes, solely three weeks after she demolished Squamish 50, the place she received the 50K and the 50/50 occasion.
The course could also be difficult, however UTHC is a path competition of pleasure and filth in probably the most picturesque and distinctive places in North America. Held within the Charlevoix area of Quebec, UTHC is especially spectacular because it weaves by mountains, lakes, rivers, and boreal forests.
A lot of the course is singletrack, heavy on tripping hazards. The path combines technical footwork with runnable sections and 4 mountain summits. UTHC historically presents 5K, 10K, 28K, 42K, 65K and 125K choices for runners, in addition to a 1K run for youths.
Within the 125K occasion, Forgie was adopted by Quebec Metropolis’s Mylene Sancoucy in 17:54, and Montreal’s Genevieve Asselin-Demers in 18:33 (sixth and ninth total, respectively).
Total 125K winner and males’s first place finisher Elliot Cardin, of Bromont, Que., had a little bit of familiarity with the UTHC trails, after ending in second place within the 2020 race, and profitable the 65K race in 2018.
Cardin was a favorite heading into this 12 months’s occasion and ran a blistering 14 hours, 43 minutes. Cardin was adopted by fellow Quebec natives Jacob Baril-Arneson in 16:28, and Gabriel Sancafon in 16:31.
