Trail des Fantômes has been on my running to-do list since the day I ran my first trail. Sometimes I was out of shape. More often there were calendar conflicts. But this year it suddenly became a certitude. Read the Post Trail des Fantômes 2016

On top of that, it would also be the final exam of our Start 2 Trail project!
