Will arrange or not arrange? Many associations are questioning about the holding, or not, of their nature races in 2021. For the staff of Wolf trail, initially scheduled for Moyon on February 14, the choice was taken in November. There will be no version in 2021.
We suspected that the sanitary circumstances wouldn’t permit it. We are one in all the first trails of the season, with 700 or 800 runners. We have been instructed at the begin that we have been appearing swiftly, however ultimately plenty of different groups make the similar choice.
” Difficult to manage “
The announcement was disillusioned, desperate to placed on their trainers. The affiliation didn’t need to incur prices with the danger of not with the ability to maintain the occasion.

With the suggestions from the earlier version, the staff feels able to deliver collectively athletes. “We can perceive that some don’t need to take dangers.
