RETURN OF THE LAPONIE TROPHY 2023
In a few words, the Lapland Trophy is:
- Supporting beautiful associations thanks to a 100% female raid making you live a physical and mental overcoming with a teammate
- Running through a wild and preserved nature and this in the heart of the polar winter ( up to -27°C)
- A moment of conviviality, sharing and laughter
- Stiffness and sweat but above all, beautiful encounters ▪ Enjoying all the magic of Christmas in the Land of Santa Claus

✔ To raise awareness of pediatric cancers in schools, colleges, high schools and even in various events.
THE DIFFERENT EVENTS:
DAY 1: Run&Snowshoe event
Despite a cold felt at -15°C, we had never been cold thanks to our equipment!!! We had followed the rule of 3 layers and we did well! It had snowed the days before our arrival, the conditions were optimal! A good part of the race was done in the powder!
We arrived at the end of the 13km without pain and with a smile! Proudly wearing the colors of the association we represent!
A relaxing afternoon before leaving tomorrow for a Run & Bike!
DAY 2 : Run&Bike event
It snowed all night which made the terrain more difficult for both running and biking! Positive point concerning our equipment we were still well protected! The 12kms were contrary to the day before covered in pain but as "the pain is in the head" we finished this event thanks to all our supporters and our will to represent until the end our association "Le rêve de Marie Dream"!
See you tomorrow for new adventures... The Cross Country Skiing & Ice Mad event !
DAY 3 : Ice Mad & Cross Country Skiing event
Temperatures worthy of the polar circle - 17°C this morning, felt -24°C, we came for that and we got it. Reboosted after yesterday's disappointment, we left even more motivated. The weather conditions were ideal, a great sun and no time to feel the cold. The Ice Mad.... what to say. Cyndi had a great time, Julia much less except in the descent! 1st lap was suffering, 2nd lap was passed. who said there was no difference in altitude in Lapland. The cross-country skiing, the good surprise of the day. We enjoyed ourselves. Against all odds, we managed, the future rising stars of biathlon. Finally, we did it. We finished it, we are proud of us, we are proud of you, you never let us down. Thanks again!
