The Frenchman Xavier Thevenard will be among us this year for this 4th edition of the Dodo Trail. He was invited last year to run the Dodo Trail but had to drop out due to injury. He is a famous runner in France and Europe, especially after his victory at the UTMB 2013, which is one of the most challenging races in the world. We’ve done an exclusive interview with him, just for you!
