The principle of the Infinity Trail is simple, it’s a Backyard Ultra:
So, you set your own limits whether it’s the distance of a marathon, a 100km or even more than 300km!!!
The Normandy Backyard takes place in Seine-Maritime, in Pavilly, near Rouen. It was the first one imagined by our team simply because it is one of the places and forests we know the best.
It is not the easiest one because the loop is rather hilly and has a difference in altitude of about 150-160m with some off-road singles. But don’t be afraid, the route is very playful and you won’t have time to get bored.
The loop is 100% on trail and 80% in the forest which can shelter you either from the rain or the sun if it’s hot. A few viewpoints are available from time to time to change your mind.
The departure/arrival/rest area is around a beautiful dovecote on grass with a view on a magnificent castle of the Austreberthe valley.
The rest area will be outside without shelter. A defined area on grass will be dedicated to each participant near the start and finish line.
You will have to plan your area accordingly in order to cope with all possible weather conditions…
Solid food and hot drink every 3 hours, so every 3 laps with rice, pasta, fruits or others. At night, we will also offer broth, coffee or tea.
Sometimes we will offer fruits or cereal bars between the solid refreshments but not necessarily on every lap.
Note that some surprises will be offered from time to time, but we can’t tell you that… you’ll have to do the rounds to find out 😉
Please take into account that on our refreshment stands, you will not find any Coke, other soft drinks or sparkling water in bottles… for the simple and good reason that it creates a lot of waste, which we want to avoid. Water will be tap water
