La Transju’, the biggest cross-country ski event in France, affiliated to Worldloppet and Visma, should have taken place on February 13th and 14th, 2021. In the difficult COVID sanitary conditions, La Transju’ organizing committee was forced into making the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 edition, but at the same time, invites participants to rise to a sporting challenge for solidarity, via your social networks with the Challenge e-Transju’.
« All conditions were present to pull off a magnificent edition, with superb snow conditions, conditions that were lacking in 2020.
The organization of an event like ours is complex and in spite of our efforts to adapt to the present situation, we are forced to cancel.
This decision, however difficult it is, in no way threatens the future of La Transju’ thanks to the support of our institutional and private partners. » affirms Pierre-Albert Vandel, President of Trans’Organisation.
Entry fees for registered participants will either be reimbursed at 90% of their value, or the entry fee will be carried over to next year’s event.
