Saturday morning departures: MaXi, R-Race

Practical information:

  • We differentiate between waves and SAS starts:
    - A starting wave corresponds to a starting time
    - For each wave, there can be 1 or 2 SAS in order to distribute the runners within the starting wave according to their level and to fluidify the starts.
  • The SAS are automatically constituted based on your performance index as of May 02, 2022
  • Your race time will start when you cross the start line.
  • Time barriers are calculated on the start time of the last wave.

Start time schedule:

  • 2:50 am: Start of wave 1 consisting of:
    - SAS 1: between 30 and 50 elite runners (index above 778 for men and 601 for women)
    - SAS 2 : 500 runners with an index above 535
  • 3h00 : Start of the wave 2 made of :
    - SAS 3: all the runners of the R-Race whatever the performance index
    - SAS 4: about 400 runners with an index between 460 and 534
  • 3:10 : Start of wave 3 made up of SAS 5 : about 500 runners with an index below 533

The challengers, a new ranking on the MaXi

As runners, we know that having an ambitious goal keeps us on course and motivated on a daily basis, but if the adventure stops prematurely, it can be very frustrating. We have therefore thought of all the traileurs for whom completing the tour of Lake Annecy in 1 day is an ambitious and motivating objective, but who hesitate because they are afraid of stopping before the end or not being able to train enough.
In 2022, all runners taking part in the MaXi-Race and stopping in the middle of the course (Doussard ) will still be rewarded for their efforts!
Indeed, you will be classified on a specific format, the "Challenger" format, which will allow you to see all your efforts rewarded.
With this new challenge, your initial goal may not be totally successful, but your weekend and training sessions will still have been beneficial!

Practical details :

  • MaXi Challenger :
    Annecy / Doussard
    44km & 2500m D+
