This race in the nature is great to enjoy sport and discover amazing Pays d’Auge seaside and countryside landscapes.
Four loop races are open to everybody, both members of a sports federation and not. The athletes can choose the race that best fits their physical condition: 21 km, 12 km, 5 km and kids race.
The 21-km course with an ascending elevation of 285 m stretches along the beach and wetlands up to the Mont-Canisy through the GR (Grande Randonnée) footpath, then downward towards the wetlands and the sea.
The headquarters of the event is the Place du Marché in Blonville-sur-Mer, departure point of several races; a “village” about sport, wellness and ecology, where about thirty exhibitors gather is also found. Prizes are awarded to the three top-ranked athletes in the general classification and the first-ranked for each race category. Any athletes are receiving a prize to keep an unforgettable memory of this challenge!
The 21-km run among sea, mountains and marshes is also a nice opportunity to support a good cause: the money collected through registrations is allocated to an association. For the 2nd edition of this event, part of the collected amount is allocated to the project of Marion Joffle, a 19-year-old girl who is training to cross the English Channel in September 2020 to fight against cancer on children. This initiative is supported by the Institut Curie.
