2022, the comeback of the competitors to the Munster valley passes? This is the event of Mai you’re all waiting for!

After two years of unsuccessful work, the Sprinter Club Munster is counting to welcome you on Mai 29th. With precaution, we lightly postponed the start of the registrations. As the horizon clears, we inform you, this is now possible to register on our web site.

Think about to have your competition medical certificate (downloadable on our website) ready, it will be requested to upload. Looking forward seeing you in Mai, we wish you a very good training.


Dear cycling friends, the number of visits to the Marcaires website confirms it every day, you want more than ever to participate in our cycling event Les Marcaires again, rediscover the pleasure of the race by riding on the roads and in the postcard scenery of our beautiful region.

After 2 cancellations in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, the Sprinter Club Munster and its volunteers are now working on the organization of a new 2022 edition.

We want to welcome you to our valley for a wonderful cycling day on Sunday May 29th.

In the coming weeks, we will keep you informed of the date when opening the registrations.

Until then, we wish you a very happy Christmas time.

Take care of yourself!

Sprinter Club Munster.

MARCAIRES 2021 Cancelled

We believed in it until now, but instead of improving, the Covid sanitary situation is again deteriorating. We are approaching the date of the Gran Fondo and we are at a turning point. It is right now that orders for equipment and services must be placed and therefore large costs will incur.

The information obtained from the local authorities did not reassure us, it all depends on government decisions and as everyone knows, they are unpredictable and evolve according to many parameters. In view of the current situation, the probability of being refused the day before the event is even quite high.

Even if there is a small chance that we could organize it, the associated sanitary constraints will be enormous. As this organization is based on volunteerism, we would have difficulty mobilizing the necessary staff.

We do not want to jeopardize the existence of the association with a significant risk of financial deficit and at the same time the existence of the Marcaires. The Sprinter Club Munster wants to continue this adventure with you. As the organizers’ agendas do not allow a postponement later in the season, we will focus on 2022, where it will be with great pleasure that we meet again.

For all those who trusted us and pre-registered we will proceed with the full refund. This will be done in the coming weeks. The few costs already incurred remain at our expense and we will not make a deduction as we had mentioned in the event rules. A second time, all the preparation work is reduced to nothing, we are probably just as disappointed as you are, but in cycling we know that after difficult sections much better times are coming.

Even though the number of events will be limited in 2021, we still wish you a good 2021 season. Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

We’re still confident

Many wonder if the race will take place, we too, but we’re still believing in it. It is true that many unknowns are still present and it is very difficult for us organizers to project with certainty but optimism is always a must!

One thing is certain, if we didn’t prepare for this organization, it wouldn’t take place at all. This is what all those who have already registered are believing, it’s an encouragement for us!

Thank you very much

MARCAIRES the 2021 edition

The Sprinter Club Munster is proud to annonce:


We are coming to the end of this year 2020 which will not remain engraved in our cycling memories. Also, we hope that 2021 will be more conducive to our sport. The cancellation of our 2020 edition was really heartbreaking for the Sprinter Club Munster but we had no other alternative. This is why we have fully refunded the 400 or so registrants that we had at the beginning of March.

We were particularly delighted with this high registration rate at this time of the year, which foreshadowed an exceptional edition. This is only a postponement, we expect just as many of you in 2021. We remain optimistic!

The 2021 edition will take place on Sunday, Mai 23.

See you soon!
