Sport, nature, solidarity, conviviality… UYN was the partner of the 8th edition of the Paladru trail which took place on April 15 and 16 on the shores of the lake, bringing together more than 2,800 participants. On this occasion, the UYN France team hosted a stand in the Exhibitors’ Village to present the brand and its trail-running collection (apparel, socks and accessories) to runners and visitors.
Over these two days, the runners had the choice between several different races including a new one called “Ultra-trail du Pays Voironnais by UYN”.
The UYNNER Nicolas Bié was one of these 200 brave to set off in the incessant rain on this new format of 82 kms / 3000m d+
Equipped in full UYN outfit – Energyon base layer shirt combined with Masterwind running vest, Exceleration shorts and Trail Challenge socks – he won the race in 8H14 with almost 10 minutes ahead of the second.
“The race was quite rough and the weather conditions added difficulty. But it was, as far as I am concerned, a great race despite two crashes”
A trail that serves as preparation for Nicolas Bié whose main objective this year is the TOR des Glaciers, in Italy. A race of 450kms / 32000m d+ reserved exclusively for two hundred runners, selected to face the still little explored paths and ridges of the Aosta Valley.
An ultra-trailer to follow!
