Organization

We are an association or runners, moutain bikers and amateurs of multi sports raids and we organize sports events in Pyrenees. The MAJUSCHULE association is registered in prefecture of Toulouse under the number W313008309.

Coming from different professional horizons, we are, above all, natural and sporting passionate persons and we want to make known our region and promote the respect for our environment by making discover some of the most beautiful sites of the region, the sites that the man has the duty to protect.

For several years, we participated in numerous races in every corner of France and in Spain. We noticed that few long distance races are organized in Pyrenees today, while the mountains lend themselves to it and that several runners like to change race from one year to the next, the natural pleasure of the races being more in the discovery of new landscapes, the meetings between the participants before, hanging and after the race than in the pure sports performance.
We train together, we participated in several races organized by other associations and we wanted to give a little of our time in return to organize sports events.
