This Saturday, Annecy, France’s Tecnica MaXi-Race hosts the 2015 IAU Trail World Championships. A collection of top athletes from a couple-dozen countries who have qualified via their own country’s standards are gathering to race the 85-kilometer mountain course.
iRunFar will be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed starting at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 30 (Central European Summer Time), which is 7:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time in the U.S. on Friday, May 29. We’re also combining our Twitter feed with other news sources in the feed below so you can watch all the action from the race in one place.
Here are some additional resources to help you learn about and follow the race:
