Ultra Montee May 5th 2018 - a beautiful sunny morning - greeted some 150+ runners as they assembled at the foot of the Lanches for one of the most grueling races of the season. Runners have eight hours to complete as many ascents of the mountain as they can - they run, walk (or some may even end up crawling!) up to the top station. Then, after a no doubt welcome respite on the way back down in the telecabine, away they go again for yet another run up the mountain! The winner is expected to achieve 13 complete ascents in the allotted time. The first ascent and descent was completed in 35 minutes with the first of the female runners following closely behind in 37 minutes. The Ultra Montee is one of a series of races run across France and attracts both local competitors and those from further afield. The winner was a local Thollongarde who competed 13 assents in the 8 hours - despite the oppressive heat on the day! The second placed, although slightly slower, also completed 13 assaults! The first female athlete (the girl with the pink shorts in the pictures) completed 10 ascents in the allotted time. Many congratulations to everyone who competed. Thanks to RG for this report

A Day out for the village's Senior Citizens . The annual Spring outing for Les Risolles this year was to the Auberge Fleurie in Monnet-La-Ville in the France Compte region. Thirty members of the village club met outside the Marie at 8.30am to join the coach that would take them round the lake via Geneva and Nyon and then over the Jura to Monnet-la-Ville. Greeted at the entrance to the restaurant by a Priest and the Bride & Groom, we soon found ourselves involved in the wedding ceremony - with some of our members acting the parts of the father and mother of the bride! Needless to say the whole thing was part of the entertainment for the day! During lunch the Priest reverted to being the MC and comedian ( at least I think that was what he was doing!! ) A wonderful lunch was followed by an afternoon of singing and dancing with the singing continuing in the coach for most of the way back to Thollon. A most enjoyable day and much appreciation as always to Nathalie and Katherine for all their efforts in organizing the event. Thanks to RG for this report
