Gran Fondo Les Marcaires - Alsace

Les Marcaires, The end
After 2 years of preparation and cancellation due to Covid, the Marcaires 2022 Granfondo was able to take place. The relaunch of this event after such a break requires a great amount of investment from the members of the association, but fewer and fewer of them are getting involved. Associations have suffered a lot from the Covid crisis, the social connections having been broken and partially replaced by social networks. In the registrations, the increasing number of participants who are not licensed and therefore not members of an association confirms this trend.

The Granfondo taking place on open roads, the safety of the participants must be ensured, and this has become extremely difficult with the increasing in our region and the behavior of certain users. Based in 2022 on a far too fragile number of volunteers and without better short-term expectations, it has become impossible to continue to organize it.

After 10 editions and having given satisfaction to many local and foreign participants, the Granfondo Les Marcaires stops. The organizers would like to thank all the participants, the partners of the event and the volunteers who worked together to make this event a success.

Life doesn’t stop though. The Sprinter Club Munster is already working on another type of organization for 2024.
The Sprinter Club Munster wishes you a very successful sporting year 2023.
