Le Défi des gorges du Trient

Date 08/17/2019

Country Switzerland

Distance 11 km

Elevation 600 m  


This challenging short race began in 2017 just outside of Martigny, in Lower Valais.

Discover this unique trail route starting from Vernayaz, first climbing up to Geuroz where you can discover one of the highest bridges in Europe. You will then follow the gorges to the place called La Tailla. After crossing the River Trient, you will enjoy the last climb towards the village of Salvan and its mill. From here you will traverse the village  before making the descent via the Road of Diligences with its famous 37 laces (or thigh testing zig zags!).

A very local race with great prizes of local wines, sausages and chopping boards!
