"For enlightened amateurs" - Since 1951
Attention: monument! With 65 editions on the clock soon, La SaintéLyon, the mythical night raid between Saint-Étienne and Lyon, the oldest ultra racing, has become a real phenomenon and the biggest nature race in France in terms of participants. 
Trail and road race at the same time, (65% of trails and 35% of bitumen), the Saintélyon is the worship appointment of end of season. It literally captivates all those who participate, solo or relay, through 7 formats of night and winter race between two major cities. 
Running at night, in the heart of an immense frontal ballet on the ridges of the Lyonnais mountains is always, whatever the weather conditions, synonymous with magic.

A 65th edition event

Not quite a birthday, but undeniably a special edition for the oldest and greatest classic of the French nature race. 
In tribute to this exceptional longevity and to Alain SOUZY , our official tracer disappeared at the end of 2017, the SaintéLyon 2018 offers you the longest route in its history with a grand 81km course , for 2100m D + and 2400m D-, and featuring unpublished portions . 
Enjoy it because the SaintéLyon will find a mileage "classic" from 2019.
For the rest, we keep the same ingredients that make the mythical Saintélyon a human adventure to live and relive: 17,000 runners maximum spread over 4 formulas and 3 relay formulas, winter and nocturnal conditions often difficult, the fairy tale an uninterrupted frontal ribbon between two major cities, the Trail Running Lounge, a huge popular success and a decidedly different atmosphere. 
Sign up now for the Trail Running cult end of season event.
