The Défi is postponed again…

Early march 2021, time has come for decisions.

Sadly, the sanitary situation in France and more generally all over Europe is not progressing enough for us to consider sticking to the plan with sufficient optimism and peace of mind.  We would need to restart planning right now, solicit our sponsors again, make commitments to our service providers, register participants’ registrations, travel for on-site reconnaissance, etc. etc. None of this could work properly, when everyone knows the whole thing could be brought to a halt at any time, including the very eve of departure.

The Rhône-Alpes Challenge will not take place in 2021

We are keeping the project design in a safe place, and will reassess the situation and the outlook towards the end of 2021, hoping to relaunch it in 2022.

It is a painful decision for the team who had dedicated themselves to the preparation of this adventure, it will clearly be a disappointment also for those who planned to participate and all those who believed in it and supported it.
Thank you, please do stay positive and above all healthy.

PS / Mobile en Ville carries on, with adjusted modalities, on all its axes (communication, awareness, expertise, training, but also togetherness and sport activities) … Stay in touch!
