Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (74400)

This race aims to unite the teams. This is why the volunteers as well as the inhabitants of the Espace Mont-Blanc will benefit from a priority on this race. It will allow you to taste, over a more accessible distance, the pleasure of participating in the World Trail Summit. The organization ensures that this new event is designed with the same quality standards as its predecessors. It will take place entirely during the day and will allow each volunteer to join their team for the rest of the week. The event will evolve on new paths and will offer participants a crossing of the most beautiful hamlets at the top of the Chamonix valley.
A unique and picturesque Franco-Swiss route. Very attached to the consistency of the courses offered, the organization offers a unique route. The runners will progress between the vineyards of the Valais hills, in the typical hamlets of the upper valley of Chamonix Mont-Blanc, discovering Chosalets, Lavancher, Tour or even Bois and of course Argentière. In the heart of fir and larch forests, runners will appreciate certain remarkable passages including the Bisse de Trient, a historic canal, which was used to transport water from the glaciers to the Swiss villages and mountain pastures. As for lovers of altitude, they will not be left out with the ascent of the Col de Balme (2190m) marking the Franco-Swiss border. From there, participants will be able to admire the granitic ridge of the Grandes Autannes and the smiling mountain pastures which welcome the source of the Arve!
