The spirit of the PTL® is based on mental commitment, team spirit and adventure, as well as sporting and mountain values.
This ultra-endurance pedestrian test takes the competitors on a grand tour of Mont-Blanc (300km and 25,000m of elevation gain), traversing high roads, without markings on the ground, which requires a sense of orientation on and off the trails. Each year the different route allows you to discover the richness and diversity of the French, Italian and Swiss paths of the Mont-Blanc massif. The PTL® is carried out in teams of 2 or 3 inseparable and united, without final classification. The teams evolve in a harsh and demanding mountain environment requiring a certain technical, physical and mental level. In view of the difficulties inherent in this test, the candidates are selected on the basis of a file of experiences presented by each team formed.
The route proposed around the omnipresent Mont-Blanc and its prestigious satellites is once again innovative and extraordinary this year. You will cross unknown places, often difficult to access and offering breathtaking viewpoints.
