Een leuke etappeloop waar in 2011 3 Nederlandse lopers aan meededen, Bram van der Bijl, Jos Broersen en Regina van Geene.
De editie van 2012 verschilt waarschijnlijk weinig van die van 2011, maar de wedstrijdinfo van 2012 staat nog niet op de site.

The difficulty of the course will result because of the length of steps, the elevation of certain stages, weather conditions, the nature of the ground (rain = paths bold). But all these difficulties, landscapes and anything that emerges from this path will still race more beautiful.
The time to complete each step is under consideration and will be announced later.
This race is officially a gathering of long-distance runners. However, a classification will be made daily and an overall time by combining all steps for each participant.
The organizers will ensure supplies positioned around every 15 miles, but riders will be allowed to refuel their own way (fountains, cafes, grocery stores, private houses) or be accompanied by a personal assistant who will follow conveyed certain rules imposed by the organization. A road book and a map (at 1 / 32000 max) of the route will be supplied by the organization.

The organization will provide the timing, establish rankings by step and graded aggregate to be broadcast every evening.
As for trance GAUL, a simple accommodation (such as gym, municipal or otherwise) will be proposed at each stage, details will be given at the publishing of full payment.
There should be minimal camping gear: sleeping bag, mattress ... and the riders' luggage will be transported each day of city-town-step stage. The dinner will be provided by the organization (served at the restaurant or served at the gym by a caterer).
Each rider must provide a breakfast for all days of the event.
