The week of the Volvic Volcanic Experience passed, with up to seven races to choose from. From the 224km of the XGTV to a trail of only 15km. With an exceptional temperature from Wednesday May 25th to Friday May 27th we were able to enjoy each and every one of the races.
In addition to all the gastronomy and shows that the organization offers us. In a spectacular setting, these seven races are held, with the majority of French runners, but with the participation of great runners such as Francois D`haene, Camille Bruyas or Shange and Dawa Sherpa.
