MaXi-Race open for entries on Wednesday 15th November

by 1
Monday 13th November 2017
One of our favourite races opens for entries on Wednesday 15th November. If you’re looking for a big adventure for next year, in an absolutely stunning environment, take a look at the Salomon Gore-Tex MaXi-Race in Annecy! 
There’s something for every runner at the MaXi-Race, whether you want a shorter (16k race), a marathon, an ultra or even a vertical kilometre! All the races involve some testing climbs, offering incredible views, and finish next to beautiful Lake Annecy. 
This race has grown and grown over the years, welcoming 8000 runners last year and serving as the World Trail Championships in 2015. Last year they added a 110km ultra race to the existing 85km MaXi-Race. Trail running royalty François d'Haene and Caroline Chaverot took the honours in the new race. 
For 2018 they will also make these changes: 
·The final section between Menthon-St-Bernard and Annecy will be modified to improve the flow of the races and to increase access for the public and for the organisation on certain routes. The Ultra-Race will be slightly longer at 117km, and the  Femina-Race will have more elevation gain, increasing from 900 to 1200m.
·The Ultra-Race will now earn finishers 6 new ITRA points.
Registration opens on 15 November 2017
Registration will open on 15 November for the Ultra-Race and the Marathon-Race, then on 1st December for all other races.
Running clubs will be able to register as of 1st November on  this page
