Well, it’s a contraction of the words “TRAIL” and “REG”. The first is about our favourite sport, the second about these fascinating desert areas.
Le TREG® is planning to become the reference for non-stop desert Trail races.
So for those loving adventures, challenges, authenticity and conviviality, le TREG® has been made for you.
Le TREG® can be defined by the following values:
Adventure – Authenticity – Conviviality – Safety – Solidarity - Respect for nature and for its inhabitants
Le TREG® is an event in self-sufficiency, auto-navigation non-stop over a distance of about 180km in unusual conditions for many runners enabling them to to excel without exceeding their limits. Isn’t this Adventure?
Le TREG® takes place in the Ennedi Region of Chad that has not profited from the Saharian Tourism of the 2000s and so remains devoid of any tourist development. Majestic sites of incredible beauty are in unspoilt desert surroundings where Time seems to stand still! But the desert is alive and humbling!
Le TREG® has been created by trailers for trailers, seriously but never taking themselves too seriously .
Once on le TREG® , you leave you leave your worries and hassles behind to make his challenge with a smile, with joy and good humor by making the most of exchanges with other runners.
Le TREG® is about the solidarity of the peoples who welcome us first of all because it will create revenues to the direct profit of the inhabitants (royalties from tourist sites, construction of the Start and Finish camp, family camping accommodation ..).
Like many difficult trials, the TREG® allows natural solidarity between the runners who live through incomparable shared emotions.
Challenges without jeopardizing could be the slogan of Le TREG®! There will be an experienced medical staff and appropriate technology, all in the service of runners to achieve this goal.
The TREG® requires the respect the desert and its inhabitants as a priority, by leaving no waste in the path of the race without forgetting respect the customs and traditions of our hosts. We are integrating our sport with the surroundings and not the reverse.
