Mont-Aux-Sources was my first ultra trail run. I trained on a program design by FFA that was tailor specifically for me and my goals and I finished with a smile on my face. Training included speed sessions, group hill repeats and monthly time trials. This made for great physical and mental preparation to successfully run and enjoy Mont-Aux-Source.
