Registrations are closed for now. Big news made above is 1 month too late, unfortunately. Come back next year and do register on the 1st open registration day if you want a slot for the race for sure, otherwise forget it...

Cheers !

"The Défi" is a permanent GPS Virtual Race too (-;

See there ( Sorry in French )

Just one important thing to know !
If you want to test the run, never go alone, or stay along the beach.
The wind is Off Shore, if you break anything good morning Africa......
