Trail running

VVX Kids Race

Friday 10 May
Event begins at 10:20 a.m.
250 participants
1 snack

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: 28km? 46km? 82km? 111km? Or – even better! – 224km? May the volcanic force be with them!


Only children beetwen 6 and 14 years old can take part in the “VVX KIDS” race.

There will be three age-based categories:

  • Red circuit – 500m/10m elevation: Children born in 2018, 2017 and 2016
  • Blue circuit – 700m/15m elevation: Children born in 2015, 2014 and 2013
