A few lines on the experience of the Kaïcedra team at the UTMB® 2021:

During the whole week we were able to live and share your sporting passion with a great family of volunteers and enthusiasts. Everything was wonderfully prepared so that runners and partners could experience the different races in the best possible conditions.
Our team on the spot vibrated with our runners but also with all of you during the presentation evening. We are proud to be part of this “family of solidarity”.
A huge thank you to our UTMB2021 runners:
