La Plagne (73210)

A solo or team challenge in a race that is open to all.

Starting at sunset, this ski touring race in a "stop or keep going" format is great for both amateurs and the most demanding athletes with its series of 3 circuits, each of which climbs to one of La Plagne's mythical mountain peaks.

New for 2024: the Monoface, a straight climb to the Grande Rochette.

The MONOFACE:
A straight climb on the route of circuit 1 of the Triface arriving at the Grande Rochette for a leisure format. You can admire the incredible view while you enjoy your post-race refreshments until 8.15pm.

The TRIFACE is a ski touring race in a "stop or keep going" format with a series of 3 successive circuits that climb to three of the mythical peaks around Plagne Centre: Grande Rochette, Verdons and Becoin.
If the 1st circuit is enough for you, there's no problem, you can stop at the base camp in Plagne Centre, enjoy a hot drink and still be ranked! The most determined will attempt to complete the 3 circuits and be among the finishers, if they have respected the time limits!

The race is for both amateurs and those who consider themselves real athletes, with different options: timed/ranked (competition format) or timed/not ranked (leisure format).

If you want to enjoy this original experience as part of a team, you can do the race as a 3-person relay (each doing one circuit), in mixed or single-sex teams. Cheer on your team-mates and maybe you will be on the podium!
Supporters can also come and encourage their friends and admire a fabulous vibrant sunset at the same time.

Since the event is organised in close collaboration with the Amicale des Sapeurs-Pompiers de La Plagne, firemen can sign up for the "Firefighters' Challenge’’. You compete over the same course, but will be ranked only with the other firemen who are participating.

- Women
- Men
- Mixed teams
- Single-sex teams
