    Hi Alison,

    Bahzob from this forum wrote this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Marmotte
    I read it through a while ago and it seemed to have loads of good information in it.

    There is also a thread going on the marmotte, which might have more information

    I'm thinking about doing it to - either that or the Etape again. Or both???? Nah, that would be madness.

    Take care
    Karen

    Popette, always embrace the madness.

    Andy, I am really tempted to do both. I know just what you mean about how things are never the same afterwards - I feel that the Etape changed me; the feeling of self-belief that comes from finishing that kind of challenge, well, I think it will be with me forever.

    Can't wait for end of October to see what the new route is :D

    Marmotte is in my top 5 (things I've ever done).

    When does the entry for 2010 open?
