What about combining your next winter holidays with a running event ?

• The 5th edition of Trail Blanch’, a foot race in a natural snow-covered environment, will take place on the 18th of January 2009 in the French ski resort of Font-Romeu (Pyrénées Orientales).

• You can choose between 3 itineraries : 13km (8.1 miles) with 320m D+, 24km (14.9 miles) with 1300m D+ and, since 2007, the famous ultra trail of 51km (31.7 miles) with 2200m D+.

• The event is run by the French association ARAVO Aventure, now the reference in Europe in the organization of winter trails, and Trail Blanch’ is the only european ultra trail run at an average altitude of 1950m.
