The Bromont Ultra: a 55 kilometer trail run

In short, Trail running simply refers to running off-road. Different to most marathons, trail running takes you throughs forests, hills and mountains. A dynamic way of running where the eyes play an equally important part in reaching the finish as the legs.

The word Ultra relates to any running distance longer than the 42.2 kilometers of the well-known marathon. With my longest running distance so far being 21 km, I've decided to sign on for the 55 km distance. This run will take me along 2200 meter of positive elevation gain and only 15% of flat trails, all to be finished within a time limit of 10 hours 30 minutes.  As a point of reference: out of the 69 male participants in the 2017 run, only 10 runners finished with 8:00 hours...

The Bromont Ultra is an event that links each participant to an organisation of their choosing. This assures an administrative solid structure behind the collection and registration of donations and the forwarding of funds to initiatives such as mine: ReliefAid. Thank you for any contribution!
