Pierre-Etienne Vachon and dog, Sputnik, trail-running 105km Traversée de Charlevoix

Run, don’t walk.
(Newsdesk) Canadian Pierre-Étienne Vachon sent over a debrief about a 105km trailrun he did with his dog Sputnik. In the Fall of 2014 he ran the rugged Traversée de Charlevoix (pedestrian path via Morios and Noyee), 105km 3300m ascent D+, in Quebec, Canada, with aid stations along the way.

“I was the first ever to complete it linking up all the most technical sections and climbs together where others’ attempts avoided them,” Pierre-Étienne stated.

To top that, Sputnik got injured and he carried his 55 pound dog on his shoulders for 12km, up 450m D+, and over ice, snow and boulders.

“Between carrying Sputnik on my shoulders and tearing something in my hip halfway through, crossing over 150 streams on iced-up logs, having a nice chat with 3 bears and 2 moose and being by myself over such a distance,” Pierre-Éttiene shared more about his experience at Explorersweb.
