REGISTRATIONS ARE CLOSED! NO MORE PLACES AVAILABLE

 

Like the last year, we are organising a Trail Weekend to the famous 'Le Trèfle à Quatre Feuilles' in. The weekend of Olne exists out of some elements, of which the race of course is the most important. The race, le trèfle à quatre feuilles, is a trail race which mostly goes off the paved tracks, over steep climbs, descents through meadows, rocky paths and a lot of single tracks! Don't expect an ordinary race like you do most of the times, but experience the forces of nature and enjoy the magnificent landscape of the Belgian hills.

The race covers four different laps and depending on your own wishes you can chose to do 12, 23, 33 or even 42 km. After each lap, you can determine whether you'd like to continue or not as the race goes through the starting point again. At this point, there is also a small recovery post with food, drinks and more. 

As the race is held on Sunday and it is not so close by, we offer you the possibility to sleep near the start. Almost everybody will do so, and it will only cost 15 euros including a decent breakfast! We will again stay in Le Château de Wegimont, a scenic old castle.

The main group thus leaves on Saturday and it has been a tradition to start the weekend with a short hike near Olne. The location of the hike is yet to be determined but will for sure offer some views which are rarely ever seen in the Netherlands! Also, they'll be an option to lunch before the hike on Saturday and we stop by some cool Belgium pub!


Another tradition in this weekend is of course a common dinner at the pizzeria of 'La Plume' close to the castle where we will sleep. Probably the only location to find any food around, and well know for its quirky interior, La Plume is the place to be to have your supper! Bring out some cash money to pay and your dictionary as French will be the only language understood! Bring some drinks and snacks from home if you'd like to have some at the castle. There is no shop around.

So, a short overview of the weekend:

  • We leave Rotterdam and head southwards on Saturday morning
  • We will have a lunch and then go for a short hike
  • Heading for the castle (hostel), dropping our bags and might have a drink
  • Have dinner (pizza) at La Plume, head back to the castle and might have another drink
  • Race on Sunday, depending on level and mood you can do 12, 23, 33 or 42 km (you can even take a walk!)
