It includes trail, run&bike, shooting, canoeing, and biathlon where more than 40 teams composed of 5 runners compete. Here is the video of the 2012 edition :
We are Othmane, Sébastien, Mona, Diane, Bertrand . We share a common passion for trail, and extreme sports. To be up for the challenge, we have trained relentlessy for months; We have supported each other in good times and injuries. Besides our two weekly trainings on the road, we try to train in the forest, in real trekking conditions, at least once a week. We are happy to say that our hard work has paid at the Preselection race where we were ranked 3rd.
Diane, the wild dreamer. This Extreme Sports enthusiast never feels more at home than when she is hiking in big spaces. Her friends call her Duracell for the energy she brings during trainings. She has been trained for several years at the harsh conditions of altitude and she will finish the trail at any price, even if she has to do it on rollerblades.
Bertrand, call him the lumberjack, the soldier, the troll…. With his only map, he will be able to guide his team through mountains and forests and will take them to the highest tops without being impressed. He might be the last descendant of the medieval times but he acts more like a cro-magnon with a special talent for making fire out of scratch.
Sébastien, the rocket of the group. He is able to keep an impressive pace regardless of the length of the route. Used to running long-distance races, he is the one to give the pace to the rest of the group and keeps a rock-solid endurance whatever the conditions.
Othmane, The sports fanatic of the group, has tried everything from bodybuiling, to rugby and karate. Trail running was only the next logical step. This 230 lbs giant never leaves his house without his technological devices, but once he’s set free in the forest, he reveals his wild side.
Mona, the captain of the team. With an extensive experience of marathons, including the one in New York, she is very light and performant. The Raid Hannibal is her little baby.. She plans all of the trainings on her excel spreadsheets and acts like a mom for her teammates, calling them at dawn to remind them of the trainings. She will do everything to make it come true including performing songs in bars.
