For its 4th edition, the 6666 Occitane knows an undeniable craze, with a very promising starting up of the registrations. The association has not envisaged a limitation of the number of participants yet, the route being very well conceived to welcome one thousand of runners, nevertheless we recommend to those who really scheduled one of the Occitan ultras not to delay validating their registration to avoid unpleasant surprises. A point will be made at the beginning of the year. An exceptional site, a dream event.
Antoine GUILLON ends 1st ex æquo with Patrick BOHARD and Cédric CHAVET in 17h09, about one hour less than in 2011.
Véronique CHASTEL offers herself a beautiful caribbean victory and the 12th place to the scratch, with about 1h30 beforehand. Magnificent season for the 6666 Occitane double winner and recently of the Endurance Trail in Millau.
Renaud ROUANET, of Team Lafuma, will be not only on the poster of the Occitan ultras, he will also be from the Grand Raid Occitan ! A beautiful challenge for the runner native of Olargues, after its 2nd place on 6666 Occitane in 2012.
Pacers : the accompaniment on the Grand Raid Occitan, the experiment 2013.
* Who did not run completely or partially one ultra with friends or unknown runner , by pleasure, by chance, by strategy ? Who did not feel a precious help by exchanging its knowledge of the route or by sharing its experience, for all to join the finishing line?
* A reflection which comes to Antoine GUILLON further to his recent 2nd place on the TDS ™ on 2012, ex aequo with his friend Lionel TRIVEL, a performance which they built together, 15 hours full of pleasure, recommendations, sharing out the difficulties, the optimization of the provisionings, the strategy. If bearing a number is the free access to this user-friendliness and these helps, or if it transforms the naming " wild assistance " into "good-companionship" then the border is finally very thin between what is authorized and what is not, between " the trail spirit " and the turned out cheating.
* The Occitane association 6666 thus decided to modify the rules of the Grand Raid Occitan 2013 concerning the accompaniment, opening the event to "pacers", under precise conditions (see race rules). The opportunity doubtless to live strong moments.
* The registration of pacers is now opened. For that purpose, the runner of the Grand Raid Occitan has to choose on the page " Zone of inscription" the number of pacer(s), to register him/ them in fields reserved on his(her) form runner, then to transmit us his/their address and coordinates (e-mail and phone) by the page contact to finalize the file of his guide(s).
