13 days to go before the GlaGla Race – Registration still open

2 weeks to go ! Over 300 participants registered so far and registration is still open. For more info read SUPRacer article and watch the teaser below.

The GlaGla Race is definitely not your average SUP race. While paddleboarding usually conjures up images of boardshorts, sun and sand, GlaGla takes the opposite approach. Instead of sand it’ll be snow, and in place of boardies you’ll find full-length winter gear.

But those paddlers who aren’t afraid of the cold will certainly be rewarded: Lake Annecy (or lac d’Annecy) is a beautiful part of the world, with the Alps rising high above the lake to create lasting imagery.

Named after the French equivalent of “Brrr, it’s freezing!” the “GlaGla” race will be a very special way to kick off the new year. For those who can make the trip to the Alps near the border between France and Switzerland, the event offers a full day of winter racing with several different courses on offer, while the sight of 300+ paddlers charging off the line will surely be something to behold (let’s get those drones going). »

From the summits of the Alps to the largest European lake

TRC_7481With 4 stops in 2 weeks and the Alpine SUP camp, for all stand up paddle and wide open mountain spaces addicts, it is an exciting time !

It started on Lake Roselend (with the famous Pierra Mountain above), a pure emerald green mountain lake with an XXL SUP Camp supervised by Eric Terrien.

TRC_7901

Eric then won the long distance and technical race in Roselend and the SUPer LAP Race in Tignes !

This week-end, after the white summits of the Savoie, the Alpine Lakes Tour is heading towards the largest European lake, Lake Geneva, with 2 stops in 2 days : one on the French side in Sciez with a long distance race going up to the picturesque village of Yvoire, a short race, a technical and kid race, Red Paddle Co (and others brands) tests and also a GladiaSUP to relax afterwards. (a stand up paddle contest with inflatable obstacles)

2014-Alpinelakestour-sciez-7
On sunday August the 2nd, less than 30 kilometers from Sciez, a totally different stop in the city of Geneva in Switzerland. The race format is going to be more technical and fun with a SUPer LAP Race. The Super Lap concept is pretty simple: During a multi-lap race, each participant gets to take a shortcut on one lap of their choice. The key here is that each paddler gets to choose when they take the Super Lap. This throws up so many interesting possibilities that turns the race into an unpredictable, tactical battle.
