• 6th edition - 2023

    May 27 and 28 in Plum - Mont-Dore

  • On May 27 and 28, 2023, the EEC Engie Trails Festival will take place. It is a benchmark sporting event in the great south!

    For the 130km, the runners will be called on Friday May 26 for a start at midnight. A dozen supply stations (hot and cold drinks, sweet and savory food, massages, medical team) held by a hundred volunteers will be set up for the competitors throughout the course.

    On the public side, assistants and spectators will be able to follow the race at different points of the course, the latter being 90% accessible. The electronic score of the runners at all the Control Posts will be put online on the net, live to allow the media, families and friends to follow the race, on the territory or from abroad.

    1-The Village

    The long distance of the UTNC requires an active organization over more than 48 hours around the start. The village, the main venue for the UTNC, is located in Plum and remains open throughout the duration of the event. Every year, this village improves to offer, upon the arrival of participants and visitors, all the amenities to be well received: signage, parking, electricity, toilets, lockers, partner stands, entertainment for adults and children, health area, food short, … “Your village has nothing to envy to some major international trails” slipped Nobuhito, our Japanese ambassador and professional in travel for trail runners.

    2- An eco-responsible event.

    With the help of local institutions (Mont-dore town hall, Zero Waste Pacific, etc.), the festival tries every year to further reduce its ecological footprint: sorting and reducing waste, sustainable signage and limited goodies.

    3- Les Eaux du Mont-Dore health center

    A key point! The UTNC's priority is to raise awareness among all runners, both experienced and beginners, about their health in the broad sense: by encouraging them to run and to participate in the Trails Festival but also by teaching them to run, to prepare, to to hydrate, to recover... The local associative fabric is mobilized every year to raise awareness and make known their cause to runners, and we hire health professionals to come and complete this trail learning: before, during and after the races. But the march is high and each new edition brings us its share of lessons to better communicate on everyone's health.
