Welcome, friends of the Salomon Gore-Tex MaXi-Race!

To all our cherished current and future volunteers! Over 8 editions of the MaXi-Race, a true family of volunteers has formed.
Our family grows larger each year with ever more volunteers joining us on this great adventure, taking a weekend out of their everyday lives to help make this event special. As they say, “the more the merrier,” and this great sporting event on Lake Annecy is certainly no exception.

However, between the smiles, cheers for the racers and  fits of giggles, you are the key organisers, the true backbone of the event. According to the international authorities evaluating the organisation in 2014 and 2015, this was a quality event, run by you in a serious and efficient manner.

The result? The MaXi-Race won an award for its organisation in the 2015 IAU Trail World Championships!
This achievement could only have happened thanks to you and you should be proud of yourselves!
So let the adventure continue with news challenges…

The 2018 edition of MaXi-Race will propose 11 races between 117km and 4km.
All the usual races will still run, but you know these all by heart by now: Mini Race, Vertical Race, Fémina Race, Short Race (ex-Discovery Trail), Marathon Race, Maxi Race, XL Race, R Race (ex-Team Race) !

Have I convinced you yet? Would you like to join the 2018 organisation team and spend a weekend at the heart of the excitement of the Maxi-Race?
