  • Saartje Sallarts (D-20)
  • Elien Melis (D-20)

  • Adriaan Pelckmans (H-18)

The terrains in the Causses Region require careful orienteering as can be seen on the map fragments on the official site and as told by people who already ran races there.

De Laatste Post scouted the area this summer:

Dourbie Canyon

The Dourbie Canyon, in which Nant, the village hosting the event, is situated. Good observers can see the enormous viaduct of Millau in the background.

Pont de la Prade

The 14th century "Pont de la Prade" in Nant, as seen from the "Chapelle du Claux", indicated by the Michelin guide as one of the best views on the bridge. The competitors in the sprint race will have to pass this bridge.

Church

The 12th century "Église Abbatiale St-Pierre", in Nant. Inside the church, you can find some beautiful capitals:

Geometric capitals

The numerous small passages in the village will certainly make even the sprint event in the city difficult.

We are looking forward to some good performances by our talented group of runners. The results during O-ringen and local races were certainly showing that the team is getting ready for their main goal, JWOC 2008 and we hope they will also show their good shape at JEC.

Anyway, we read that this will be the last JEC, anyone with more information?

    Ik ben er 2 jaar geleden geweest. De vijfdaagse was schitterend... Prachtige kaarten en mooie details die goed te lezen zijn.

    Het zal voor vele een mooie uitdaging worden.

    Succes en geniet van de rotsen...
