Clap, clap, clap, la GlaGla Race c’est fini ! Merci à tous les participants qui, malgré des conditions météo particulièrement difficiles, les plus difficiles rencontrées jusqu’à présent sur une étape de l’Alpine Lakes Tour (et il y en a eu !!), ont relevé le défi ! Malgré tout, on peut s’estimer chanceux, le temps aujourd’hui était bien pire sur le lac… et s’annonce encore pire demain !
This 4th GlaGla Race is now over…
First I want to thank you all for coming ! We had people from South Africa, Australia, Algeria, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, UK and from all regions of France : from Corsica, the South west, the french riviera, Brittany, normandy, the North…
INFO ABOUT GLAGLA RACE 2018 here
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). »
