There was something for everyone at the Salomon Bastille Day Trail Run on Saturday, organised by Energy Events; 15km, 25km, 35km and 50km options. Chilly weather, beautiful mountains, icy river crossings, rocky terrain and well marked routes sums up this trail run. Be sure to mark it in your diary for next year – the 15km race sells out quickly.

The Salomon Bastille Day MTB on Sunday had 3 options; 65km, 40km and 12km. The 65km was definitely not for novice riders. Beautiful virgin mountain trails and river crossings with some very technical rocky terrain with some unrideable sections towards the end. Hopefully next year a few changes will be made so that there’s not quite so much bike carrying required. But apart from that it’s a stunning race venue and well organised.
