The Black Fly Trail Race consists of a unique and challenging series of timed foot races on the trails and ski hills at Camp Fortune in Old Chelsea, Québec. Participants will race around either a short or long course, completing as many loops as possible within their prescribed time limit (3, 6, 12 or an insane 24 hours!). All runners will pass through a well-stocked checkpoint on each loop, where food and water will be available along with a crowd of crazy supporters to cheer them on!

Also new for the Black Fly in 2019 is the Bushtukah-3BR Trail Running Mini-Festival! On Saturday, May 18th, Bushtukah and 3beavers racing will host an afternoon of trail running clinics, gear demos and speakers to get the Black Fly party weekend started! At 2pm we will host a free and unique race called "Brian's Buster", which will consist of an approximate 2km course up and down Brian's Climb and Descent and back to the start line at full throttle! The afternoon will then culminate with the start of the 24-hour race at 6pm!
