L'association Volodalen

About Us

L’association Volodalen Solidaire a été fondée par un petit groupe d’amis passionnés de course à pied. Nous avons décidé de partager notre passion en organisant dans la nature sauvage de notre Jura un trail au profit des plus démunis au Bénin en Afrique. Les trails de notre association se déroulent chaque année à la fin du mois de juillet dans la région du lac de Vouglans trail-volodalen.com et la nuit au mois de novembre dark-trail.com
