Trail 80km gives you 4 ITRA points
A Trail in Paris, yes it's possible!
In 2008, when we set up this new Trail event, many runners did not understand that our project was not to invent a new kind of race but indeed a Trail and there were a many sceptics.
Your many accounts prove to us today that we succeeded in meeting the challenge of organising a truly cross-country race in the Ile-de-France and in addition with a Finish in the heart of Paris.
Of course, this EcoTrail® de Paris was a mad project but one fed by our desire to offer a cross-country race, at home, within immediate proximity to Paris. Finally what more natural that to attempt to lay out, on our daily training sites, races taking in many woods, forests, parks, giving value, often unknown, to a natural and cultural heritage?
From Saint Quentin-en-Yvelines to the Eiffel tower
Ile de loisirs de Saint Quentin in Yvelines, Domain St Philippe, Meudon Observatory, Saint Cloud National Estate, State Forests of Versailles, Chaville, Meudon, L'ïle Saint Germain, the Champ de Mars, so many exceptional places that we are inviting you to discover in the context of this unique experience of a real Trail in urban surroundings, 90% of which are paths so proving that a reasoned urbanism takes perfect advantage of its natural environment!
It is also for this that our involvement in the respect of Nature is concrete and that beyond inviting you to take public transport (we are giving you your train ticket to get to the Starting Line) we have wanted to set up an ethical charter that you will have to sign and to respect so as to demonstrate if it is possible that a mass race organisation can align itself with a "clean" race.
The sustainable development at the heart of the event
On our part, we have undertaken with the National Forestry Office to help them rehabilitate the site of their choice by deducting a part from the race enrolment fees.
We are therefore making a rendezvous with you on Saturday 18th March 2017 for an even more festive and united 10th event. We are really looking forwards to greeting you up to 1 o'clock in the morning on the Finish Line at the first floor of the Eiffel tower to present you with your Finisher gift.
As places are limited, be quick to enrol so you can enjoy your Trail activities without rush and in complete freedom.
Waiting to hear from you very soon.
