During this Duathlon, the participant starts with his Mountain bike (MTB) at Lycée Belval (High School) to join the Fond-de-Gras, a historic cultural industrial site (21.2km). From the transition zone, the running circuit (9.6 km) leads you past the middle of a natural reserve called “Giele Botter” an ancient open pit mine. Once the highest point reached, the participant will have a panoramic view from an ancient rock face all over the mining area. Back at the transition area, the participant leaves with his mountain bike (MTB) to head to the finish at the High School “Lycée Belval” (18.2km). But be careful while crossing the small enchanted village of “Lasauvage” (The wild), not to run into the “wild” and thus follow a legend ….,
