Prepare yourself to brave the cold & embrace the night

Thanks to the collaboration of the Clinique Lambert Physio and United for sport, you will be in good hands for your physical preparation for the 2021 CRYO Races..


Mathieu Blanchard (elite runner – or passionate runner as he would say!) explains how to read your training plan and gives you his advice on how to effectively prepare for an optimal experience on race day.

Psst… Something’s cooking! United for sport will have a great surprise to share with the 32km To-Go participants.


The programs were designed by Mathieu Blanchard. Mathieu is one of the best ultra trail runners in the world and he runs almost 100 km per week in winter. The training plans proposed therefore reflect his experience and are well suited to this unique winter event.

All programs are 10 weeks long and start on December 15, 2020. Multiple versions are available to accommodate athletes of different levels. Refer to the first page of each plan to make sure it is appropriate for your level of experience.
