Sport, sun and good humor, the recipe for success on the Trail du Bout du Monde, in Plougonvelin – Plougonvelin



Running in Brittany, at the End of the World, along one of the most beautiful ports in existence, this is what 1,500 wild coastal trail enthusiasts are doing, this Sunday, July 10, 2022, between Plouzané and Pointe Saint- Mathieu, in Plougonvelin. The Trail du Bout du Monde (TBM) was once again a great success, both for the participants and for the public, who followed the race throughout the entire route.

Strong heat for some organisms

The 57 km solo and duo, which started at 8 in the morning from the Plouzané velodrome, was followed by the 37 km, almost an hour later. With a sun more than present, like the day before, the Sunday outing was going to be hard for some organizations. At the Petit Minou lighthouse, after a few kilometers, the colorful cordon of trail runners had already faded and only a handful of men, including Jonathan Parisé, the 57km winner, were at the outpost. The runners, who chained ascents and descents and stepped on some plains to revive themselves, swallowed the kilometers bordering magnificent landscapes, between land and sea.

Tired but happy

Perhaps the hardest, morally, of the 57 km, is when those of the 37 km fork towards the finish line, at the foot of the Saint-Mathieu lighthouse, when the first cities still have to swallow a few kilometers making the same loop as the day before (20 km). “But, in the end, what a joy for us to cross this mythical finish line. Cramps or not, we did it! And thanks to all the volunteers! two runners smiled.

Tired, but happy, they concluded this sixteenth edition of the TBM, a true reference in the middle of the route. “When you say you won at the End of the World, you are good! “, emphasizes Bruno Disarbois, secretary of the TBM.
