A magnificent 3rd edition of the Lekkarod took place from March 14th to 22nd. Sharing, emotions, joys, surprises … For 9 days the race has reached a new milestone with a record number of participants (mushers, handlers and dogs) and has coped with the vagaries of the weather (because if it was missing no snow visibility was almost zero on 2 stages in Les Saisies). And as a conclusion, a masterful final bouquet in Bessans under the sun of the Haute-Maurienne.
