You are many to ask me if there will be a 2nd , the answer , is Yes it will be for next August 1, 2023,
Registrations are open
We fought and we won the right to restart
Attention you must know …
1/ Transpy is a travel not a race , is a monster and there is no shame in not finishing it the first time.
2/ There is not a CP every 8/10 km …but only 30 km( can be 24h00 )
3/No finisher is part of the game … 75% of no finishers
4/ The PGHM ( french Rescue) never moves at night ,in the middle of a storm… impossible to take off or put rescuers in danger even by putting the frontal towards the sky .
Know how to auto-protect yourself and let pass the storm. Our rescuers are also there to look for you.
We’re back on the road again trying and we ask you a Transpy goodfather, or the validation committee to make sure new registrants know where they’re going!
No, we’re NOT going to go back in the concept of UT and we’re not going to do ultra trail, because it’s just impossible … on 900 km
Be careful to think carefully about the second one because you have to know:
YES We will keep her character “Wild” Roots “ Rustic and Wild, the concept remains the same
NO We will keep the same organization times , they are wide and superior to those of the hiking federation!
NO, they are not Time Barriers and if we need to adapt them,
Knowing that these are organizational times requested in prefecture over 17 days and not barriers sanctions and not cut-offs …
I have never disqualified anyone in 17 years.We will wait for the last one and revive it if it is in physical condition.
It will still not be an Ultra Trail … (that the one who knows how to make a marking of 900 km throws me the first stone ….)
YES there will always be an important mandatory material 8kg dry minimum
Yes a real poncho for all and RED or JAUNE
Yes will be asked 7000 Kcal in the bag , that’s what you swallowed per day!!!! I do not recommend the cashews or olive oil diet.
Yes you will always be hungry, we will give you a meal by CP … and you will always be hungry …
Yes the same marked public way ,the GR 10 with its 65,000 of D+
Yes there will be podiatrists(+), nurses(+),and civil protection …but if you do not heal between 2 CP ( more than 12h) , or do not dry yourself even your feet , our teams will only be able to see the damage …too late and an armada of podos or civil protection will do nothing
NO there is no bed, no mattress on the CP only tents … , if you want a mattress , you bring it
NO there will be no plastic bottles of WATER – NO COCA….
only tap or river or fountain water ….filter obligatory
There are 1123 shops and bars on the way…
Yes, we will security even more and more by human and a device and we will have Trackers even if I think it is not a major factor of security.
YES there will always be dissatisfied, some have missed their adventure … others have made the adventure of their lives but we have listened to all the reviews , it takes 4 editions to make the perfect edition , and those who expected the perfect Raid of the first , over 900 km did not understand the monster that it is…. we will do the max!
Autonomy and Self protection are the “key words”, I mean that you should not necessarily rely on others, or even on your assistance if you have one .
There were 20 CPs with hot meals, (instead of the planned 6 , congratulations to my team for their reaction), but you will be hungry all the time … lolnous will go to 20 menus/ 20 CPs is about I think 30% of your needs in KcalDonc Thanks to those who tried the start , thank you to all the RSO team who knew how to lead the “Raid” to the Atlantic , thank you to those who come back Finishers or not, to the little ones who will start again.Our ( super) volunteers of the organization or even your assistance are there ONLY to help you …. to create your own adventure .
We will capitalize on the experience of this first, imperfect certainly, so that it is even more beautiful , the working groups are already in action …but we will keep the same spirit .
I repeat it because many did not believe it … but it is and will remain the philosophy of the RANDO RAID You have done a huge adventure ….
