03-05-2016 OrienTRAIL : inscrivez-vous !

Salut les futurs OrienTRAILEUR !!

Il ne reste que quelques heures avant la limite d'inscription au tarif préférentiel (6€ avant le 5 mai).
Le week-end dernier, un Traileur émérite mais aussi excellent orienteur, en la personne de Gilles Delmée, a testé le parcours. Voici ce qu'il en ressort :

- Add another level of fun on your trails -

"Je retiens un parcours très varié au milieu de la magnifique forêt d’Herbeumont qui alterne des parties roulantes pour lâcher les chevaux et des parties plus exigeantes pour solliciter les muscles. Entre les côtes et les descentes techniques qui s’enchainent, il faut trouver du temps et un peu de lucidité pour anticiper et suivre l’itinéraire proposé sur la carte. L’OrienTRAIL ajoute une dimension supplémentaire très excitante par rapport au trail classique. Les kilomètres et le dénivelé sont avalés avant même qu’on ne s’en aperçoive."

Alors n'hésitez, et plus cliquez ici pour vous inscrire !
