Mud Day in Brittany has been cancelled for security reasons

EVENT: The prefecture asked the organizers to change the route of the Mud Day for security reasons …

The race was to take place in a month to the day. She was eventually canceled. The Mud Day Course 13 kilometers obstacles encased and filled with mud can not stand on the military base of Saint-Cyr Coëtquidan (Morbihan).

Led by Amaury Sport Organization (ASO) which manages the Tour de France and the Dakar Rally, the event has already occurred twice on the military site . But this year, the prefecture of the Morbihan vetoed, reported Ouest-France , advancing “security reasons”.

This year, the course was to integrate the perimeter of technological risk prevention plan , a system set up after the explosion of the AZF factory in Toulouse in 2001. The prefecture has asked the organizers to move the route, but these felt they “had no time” with only a month to go before the event. 9,000 people were enrolled in this trial. They will be reimbursed or redirected to other races, said ASO.
