What is the Martin Fourcade Nordic Festival ?
From 2nd to 4th September 2022 in Annecy, meet for the third edition of the Martin Fourcade Nordic Festival, composed mainly of wheel ski races, a derivative of cross-country skiing. The Pâquier will be transformed for the occasion into a real summer biathlon ski arena with shooting ranges installed on the shores of the lake to welcome runners and spectators!
Indeed, 4000 spectators are expected in the stands to encourage the 60 athletes, from 10 different countries, as well as 300 children in the Biathlon Kids race and 600 participants in the General Public race. In a desire to democratize his passion for sport, Martin Fourcade devotes the Sunday to events for the general public so that everyone can participate, whatever their age or level.
