RATES

 

In the following section, you will find all the necessary information concerning our rates.  You will have access to the cost of all the UTCC 2019 races

Cost of races:

Note that all taxes are included in the prices shown. Note that registration for 2,8 km and 5,3 km runs is free for youth 17 and under. Please select the 17 and under registration on when registering.

This safety measure is added to maximize your security because the altitude of the mountains greatly influences the climate.  Thus, wind, rain, hail and snow are all elements that can occur on very short notice and, when mixed with technical trails in back country far from roads and where even off-terrain vehicles don’t have access, searches can become long and difficult for the first aid responder.  Then, to help us in our search, in the event of an accident in the vast territory of this remote area, we have decided to equip ourselves with a tracking system.

 

The daily $7.85 Sepaq access pass to the park is included in your registration fee.

 

These expenses are paid exclusively for the day of your racing event with your bib as proof. Parking is free of charge.

 

It is compulsory for any accompanying person to have his / /her access pass to the park.  For information or to purchase the pass, consult https://www.sepaq.com/pq/tarification-parcs-nationaux.dot

 

The access pass is free for children 17 years of age and under

It is mandatory for all accompanying persons over 18 years of age to have his / her Sepaq access pass to the park. Otherwise they may receive a violation ticket – See Sepaq regulations.  Free for those accompanying a handicapped person.
