GPX - CHALLENGE of 12, 21, 32 or 50km

11 Jan until 31 March 2021


Sportevents, organiser of dozens of trailrun and walking events every year, is once again launching a new concept: the MYGPX Challenge. This challenge offers you different routes with start and finish in Houffalize.

You will find the right way by following the GPX route. You can run it or walk it. The challenging routes start and finish in the centre of Houffalize. The routes lead you through the beautiful nature in and around Houffalize and let you discover the most beautiful trails of the area.
Choose from 4 different routes: 12 (562m+), 21 (807m+), 32 (1028m+) or 52km (2018m+) for the ultra-trailers. The two longest distances pass by the start point so you can provide your own supplies if necessary.
The 3 longest courses pass by the famous Achouffe brewery ! Consult the opening hours and be sure to drop by.

The routes have to be done clockwise and there are NO river crossings. 

You can run or hike this challenge between Jan 11th. and March 31st. 2021 whenever and with whom you want. If you are competitive, give us your time and we will put you in our 2021 ranking, which will be final on April 1st !
