SHORT COURSE VS LONG COURSE
WHICH ONE IS FOR YOU?
The ‘Long-course’ option will offer approximately 30% more racing than the short course.
In comparison, the Short Course will take-in the same superb stages as the Long Course, but will miss out one or two of the most difficult trails, each day…as well as skipping the biggest, longest climbs.
For those who raced Meribel in 2023: the Long Course will be about the same size overall, in 2024.
The ‘Short’ Course in 2024 will be about 10% longer than in 2023.
Let’s be clear – the ‘Short’ Course is still big, when compared to almost every other regular enduro-format race that we know about…but the long course really does just go that bit further and clock up some serious mileage and descent, as well as cover a larger domain.
We feel that the Short course is a perfect intro for Enduro2 first-timers, or teams who are eager to have a little time to spare each day to enjoy some extra relaxation (or more party!). It’s also suitable for those strong but younger riders out there – minimum age is 12 years old when riding with a responsible adult. Father/Son and Mother/Daughter teams – this is your time to shine!
