Event descriptionLast chance to have some fun before winter sets in, two new areas around southern France's famous Plateau du Larzac. Both events are middle distance races. Saturday at the Cirque de Mourèze (near Clermont l'Hérault), a famous tourist site (look it up in Google). Sunday at Combefère, a lovely area adjacent to Le Caylar.
Terrain descriptionCirque de Mourèze : spectacular rock towers set in open or semiopen vegetation. Very tough and rocky underfoot. Mapped using the ISSOM sprint standard at 1:5,000 to allow space for all the eye-popping rock and contour detail. Combefère : classic Larzac terrain, very runnable with the usual areas of rock features and detailed low hills, set in a mix of semi-open pasture and light green forest. Standard 1:10,000 map.
