The Geneva Ecotrail attracted new fans for its second consecutive year with 50% of new participants. We’d like to thank all trailers participants on Ecotrail Geneva for their energy, their enthusiasm and their banana smiles.
It was the perfect opportunity to discover “la Genève International” with its 80km start on the iconic esplanade of the famous “Place des Nations”, in front of big building of United Nation.
We had the honor to welcome Emmanuel Gault (07:19:54, à 10mn 31 from the second man) & Sylvaine Cussot (04.03.23 at 02mn55 from the first man) who came with all their nice family. They’re don’t miss to win the first place on scratch podium in their respective distances, 80Km & 42km.
We have to admit that we organize a great surprise for main part of our participants.
The trailers were happy to climb on Geneva’s Mountain, the Salève which rises above the canton of Geneva at 1379 altitude meters.
The view from the top of the Salève was amazing, the Mont-Blanc on one site and the Leman Lac with is exceptional “Jet d’Eau” which rises at 120 meter high. By reaching the top of the mountain, each traileur was able to admire the incredible viewpoint offered by this new track.
Like last year, the sun was at the “Rendez-vous”, and many participants take the opportunity to jump on clear water of Leman lake on the arrival area before having relaxing massage on the esplanade overlooking the lake and the wonderful Geneva Bay.
