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 Infinity Trail comes to the North, to the mythical region of the Bassin Minier. A territory shaped by the hand of man with these black mountains called slag heap. It marks the imprint of the past, in which the memory must remain.
To run on these Terrils is to pay homage to this Territory, to push back its limits as thousands of men and women have done.
The course offers you an incredible loop through the Arena Terril Trail, along the canal of Lens, around the pond of Brochet or through the marsh of Garance.
It’s a great way to test your limits, much further than you think…
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
