Jonathan Albon, who won the Ultra division of the Skyrunning World Championship in 2018 and finished fourth at last year’s Trail World Championships, was also named to the team.
The race will be a relatively short 50K this year, but with 2,500m of elevation gain.
Canada is expected to announce the first members of its team in the next few days.
