Bad Beaver Ultra

Returning in 2021

The Bad Beaver Ultra is a 3-day, 150km, semi-supported stage race that takes competitors through many of the unique and wondrous aspects of one of Canada’s most historic and scenic parks – the Gatineau Park.

The race starts at the Lac Philippe campground. From there, racers first work their way through the beautiful trails of the Lac Philippe area (including through the Lusk caves), before snaking along the Pontiac equestrian trail at the base of the Luskville escarpment on the North side of the Park. Racers then make the steep ascent of the escarpment at Luskville Falls up to the Fire Tower, before eventually descending back down and along the beautiful Meech Lake. Racers are then asked to make the long climb up to Champlain Lookout, on to Camp Fortune, around King Mountain, and through the Mackenzie King Estate, before enjoying the fun descent to the Visitor’s Centre in Old Chelsea.

The race is divided into three main sections of approximately 55k, 70k, and 25k, for a total distance of about 150km. Throughout the race, competitors are expected to carry all of their own gear and in-race food for the event, with the exception of their evening meals which are provided each day at camp!

Midnight Moose Ultra

September 25-26, 2020




The Midnight Moose Ultra is a night-time ultra-trail race with distances of 25km, 50km and 100km across some of the toughest trails in the Gatineau Park.

With only moonlight, head lamps and reflective trail markers,  competitors will be challenged to navigate through the course aiming to complete the race before sun-rise (for the 50km race), sun-set for the 100km race!

100K Cutoff – 24hrs!
