Being back from the Jura Mountains and the Vale de Travers had to say, i would like to go there again next year. Although it had not been a technical trail, the scenery is very nice and it is a wonderful places to run. You will go up to 1600m highest and there had been still some fields of snow. But the weather was very nice and temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees. There had been about 120 runners for the trail with 75km and about 3000m in height.
Paths have been a mixture of normal streets, trails and paths.
Here i have made some pictures during the race.
The start of the race is at the sport centrum at couvet. Many enthusiastic specators and supporters have been around.
