The Bad Beaver Ultra is a 3-day, 150 km, semi-supported stage race on foot that will take competitors through many of the unique and wondrous aspects of one of Canada's most historic and scenic parks - the Gatineau Park.
Competitors will face a series of challenging and exciting obstacles throughout the race including scrambling up rocky escarpments and ski hills, running a crazy-hard mountain bike race course, slogging through streams and mud, navigating a tricky cave section, and, yes, tip-toeing across a beaver dam or two!
The course is divided into three main sections of approximately 55k, 70k, and 25k, for a total distance of about 150km. It follows established Park trails and is anything but flat! Race organisers have tried to minimize road sections - only including them where necessary or because they offer beautiful vistas.
Throughout the race, competitors will be expected to carry all of their own gear and in-race food for the event, with the exception of their morning and evening meals which will be provided by race organisers each day at camp! Water will be provided every 10-15km on course and at camp.
