Event descriptionFrench national long distance event (Sunday 3rd) plus two warm-up middle distance events (Friday 1st, afternoon, & Saturday 2nd, morning).
Terrain descriptionNew area for the national event, perhaps the best yet on the world-famous Plateau du Larzac : the usual dolomite rock formations & intricate contour detail, but this time most of the area is light green beech forest with some denser pine, and just 20% of the traditional open/semi-open terrain. Some tough vegetation will make for tricky route choices. Friday's race is a short middle distance on a new sprint map of a mixed urban/forest area around the village of Le Caylar, Saturday's is on the acclaimed St Jean de la Blaquière "red desert" map, used only once before for a handful of local runners (see photo).
