A word from Claude Plisson:
We are proud of our 40 years of experience in the event industry. Today, as head of the new organising team, I wish to highlight the skills of each person.
It is by focusing our work on sharing that we will be able to move forward and invent or reinvent the events of tomorrow.
Athletes, volunteers, parents, children, coaches, judges, wherever you are or whatever your age, join us.
Annecy Haute Savoie Athletics, a club open to ALL and a school of life !
How everything continued
1993 – 2021 :
- Merger in 1993 of the Salésienne Athlétique Club and the Club Athlétique Ambilly, Cluses et St Julien en Genevois.
- Creation of the brands in 2014 to protect the events and offer you the best possible experience.
- New management team in place by end of 2020
- Resumption of post COVID events on 25 & 26 September 2021
A passion that is passed on
Alone we go faster, together we go further. The AHSA is first and foremost the history of a group based on sharing and transmission.
- The coaches pass on to the athletes
- The athletes pass on to the younger ones and to the public
- The volunteers pass on to the runners
- The club passes on to its partners, etc.
A never-ending cycle that allows us to understand the human value and the importance of passion.
Be the master of your life and if our philosophy fits you then join us and push yourself !
