The Côtes de l'Orbe Half Marathon committee met recently to prepare for its September 10, 2022 event. Unanimously and despite the ambient uncertainty, we all very much want to organize an edition in 2022, even if the format must be reduced / different compared to the last years.

The secretary is available for any questions you may have.
Yours in sport and good health.
