Great champions

at Puy-en-Velay

The 15km International race is a benchmark in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes. This is evidenced by the international label it obtained from the French Athletics Federation for the quality of its organization but also the results and performances obtained by the runners. In the region, only 3 races have this label: the Pastourelle and the Beaujolais marathon and therefore the 15km du Puy.
