The various events of the LG Trail take place in a unique but fragile setting. It is our responsibility to promote, among everyone, the values of the trail : respect for people and the environment, mutual help, solidarity, fair play, humility …

Thus, in order to inform all the people who participate to the LG Trail (runners, partners, volunteers, organizers, local authorities …) and to guide them in their behaviors and actions, we have drawn up the charter of the LG Trail.

By joining the LG Trail community, I pledge to :

Respect the values of trail and sport: mutual aid, solidarity, sharing and conviviality

To become aware that I am evolving in a fragile natural environment.

Respect and preserve the fauna and flora by staying only on the race track, closing the portals behind me, bypassing the herds of animals that I will cross in the Jura

Do not throw any waste on the course

Respect the work of the winemakers, do not touch the tools used for the grape harvest that may be near the vineyards.

Use public transportation and carpooling as much as possible to get to and leave the event

Helping a competitor in a difficult situation
