Notz Stucki – Trail des Paccots 2016 edition
After the first race ran together in Morat (NScope: article of October, 2015), a delegation of the NS team participated to the “Trail des Paccots”, a race between mountain pasture, thin forest, rivers and, this year, very difficult weather (mud, rain and hail!).
Despite the extreme conditions for the season, the highly motivated runners choose their program: 17 km (1’100m D+), 27 km (1’900m D+) and 41 km (2’600m D+).
For some it was a discovery, for others a training for bigger future objectives.
Regardless encountered problems, they indeed learned a lot about themselves, this was an opportunity to train their mental and push their body to the limit.
Once the race finished, after switching from one emotion to another, they were happy to share their pains, enjoyment, feelings. Trail running isn’t just a sport, it’s an experience, a challenge, that’s why for sure all the team will sign for the next race…
