    Our thoughts are particularly with Fabrice Leconte, co-founder of UTNC. Accountant by trade but above all a lover of nature in real life. He loved to unearth and explore the rare corners of the beautiful New Caledonian nature.

    He discovered by chance, through a report, Trail Running (now Raid) and joined “Les Marcheurs du Mont-Dore”. His passion has only grown over the years. So much so that he was very involved in clubs and associations.

    During his participation in the Diagonale des fous in 2016, he met Daniel Bonnefis and together imagined what would become the UtraTrail and the Trail Festival in New Caledonia.

    In July 2020, a massive blow for the athlete: Fabrice suffered from kidney failure and had to stop trail running while waiting for a transplant. Fabrice unfortunately left us at the end of 2022. We dedicate this 2023 edition to him.
