Lesley, 42 years old, ran her first EcoTrail in Brussels 7th September 2019. She told us her experience.
What did you choose to run the EcoTrail Brussels?
I chose the Ecotrail Brussels because I live nearby. However I didn’t know the Zoniënwoud [forest at the southeast edge of Brussels where the EcoTrail takes place] very well... In combination with the ecomessage, I chose this one.
What's your best memory on the race?
Running up a little but very steep hill to arrive at the Hippodrome in the pouring rain... Magical!
What's your prefered part of the course?
From start to finish :) ... no dull parts whatsoever.
Could you sum up your experience in one word?
If you have one, what's your next EcoTrail challenge?
I would like to try to run an Ecotrail abroad. I've a slightly preference for the Nordic options like Oslo or Stockholm. But for next year I will run again in Brussels but a longer distance...I would like to see the Waterloo lion :)
