Hello everyone, we are happy to meet you again to launch the new 2019 edition.
A quick look back at the 16th edition, which closed with a great popular success.
The relay with 37 teams registered seduced more and more riders. But above all, the solidarity walk was very well attended. More than 80 walkers came to discover the surroundings of Ghisoni. The individual race with more than 180 registered runners is still a must for local regional specialists in the discipline.
But this year we witnessed a renewal of the runners’ origin (more national and foreign runners). The registration of the race for the Skyrunner National Series France challenge, the referencing of the race in the main sports calendars are certainly at the origin of this evolution.
But beyond the sporting aspect, we were all gathered to give a little help to little Matéo. The encouragement of all the actors of this event (runners, walkers, volunteers, sponsors, villagers) we hope, will modestly help this little kid in his fight against the disease.
But let’s now turn to the 2019 Edition and its new features.
We are pleased to announce that this year the Oriente Race will host the final of the Skyrunner National Series (SNS) challenge. This final is a sporting recognition of course, but also of the seriousness of the organization and the state of mind and values defended by our event.
We will tell you a little more about this challenge in another publication.
So, on Sunday, August 4th, 2019 in Ghisoni, come and share our values and live your own adventure!
