Join me for some trail running training in Annecy. The MaxiRace®, 84km Ultra is undoubtedly a demanding course and a real personal challenge that requires a serious and thorough preparation!

Are you registered in the Ultra or the Marathon or are you planning to participate someday? Or do you simply want to discover this magical trail in two days? Then this course in Annecy, in France, is for you. So don’t wait, register now!

This course is supervised by myself and maybe another trail running athlete. I will show you the path with passion and also give you all the tips you need to refine your preparation and race strategy.

You will stay in a 3-star hotel on the shores of the Annecy Lake.

In the ‘extra’ section below, you’ll find information about the required trail running level you need to have. You will also see the equipment that you need to bring with you.

During these 3 days, we will run on average 35km a day and go up from 1500 to 2500 meters. We will mainly be on single tracks and technical trails (stone, névé…). We will partially run off trails and be on aerial paths.

Contact me if you want to train around Annecy Lake and discover this beautiful area! I’d be happy to accompany and coach you according to your needs and goals. If ever this program should not match your desires, I will present my other programs in the Alps and elsewhere, for beginners and experts. For example, this trail running trip in Saint Gervais.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
