This international course got the interest of many runners, the Ultra trail.

This sport is one of the most demanding sport of all time. All around the wolrd, countries like Canada, the USA, Africa, Chile, China and also in Antarctic decide to organize races because more and more people have interest in running. The Ultra Trail consist to run over 42 km out road in mountains, desert or in forest.

You’ve probably asked yourself why people do this? For some, the real fun is when the diffilculty becomes very extreme. In some situations, people have died and that’s why they are doing this hobby. That makes it interesting. It is very Dangerous but at still people like it a lot.

The runners priorise connections with other runners. It’s not just a physical experience but also a psychological experience. When they run, they fall into a personal zone that can create abandonment or regrets.  Physical injuries are the main reason why 40% of the runners don’t finish their race. If the marathoner lose too much weight, they worry about dehydration and if they take too much mass in weight, they worry about hypernatremia.

“Everything is weighed, each gram counts. With one extra gram, you reduce your speed for around 1,5 km per hour.”, said Jean- Francois Bégin, an UltraRunner.
