The Eleventh Edition of the ‘Trail Blanc’ : A great start to the year for trail runners

                 On Sunday 26th January 2020 there is the eleventh edition of the ‘Trail Blanc.’  This mountain race is organised by the club called ‘Restonica Trail’ and the profit will go to the ‘Marie Do’ cancer charity.  This race is the first opportunity of the year for trailers to test themselves on this  18km challenge.  Following a fairly heavy snow fall this weekend, it’s safe to say that a fair amount of the course will be under the snow.
