The kids have their own trail to enjoy! The race takes place on the Goulet site. It starts from the same place as the adult race: under the VVX arch.
Waves of 20 children are sent off at a time: the next wave leaves as the last gets back to the starting line.
Each child is allowed to complete the course as many times as they want during their allocated 20 minutes.
Will they manage to run the distance of the adult trails: 25km? 43km? 80 km? 110km? Or – even better! – 224km? May the volcanic force be with them!
