CONVIVIALITY

What characterises the CUT and makes it unique, differentiating it from all other Ultra Trails, is the conviviality that one breathes every evening at base camp.

The small number of participants and the Spartan accommodation facilitate a spirit of fraternization and a goliardic atmosphere that make this a unique experience, both for the body and the spirit . Athletes will also have the opportunity to get to know and appreciate the region by tasting its typical food products of excellence.
