The Escape Belle is a crossing through the Belledonne massif, which is characterized by its high technicality, its commitment on difficult to access trails, and the altitude at which it takes place. Created in 2013 and defined from its first edition as one of the most beautiful trails but also one of the most demanding, L’Échappée Belle has immediately imposed itself in the world of ultra.
The highest point of the race is 2 930 m at the Cross of Belledonne. A glacier crossing (Freydane), 15 passes and 40 km at over 2000m altitude must be crossed to reach the end of this adventure. 

Three races: L’eschappée Belle intégrale: 114 km with D+ 11100 m; La traverse nord: 85 km with D+ 6050 m et Le parcours des crêtes: 47 km with D+ 2800 m.
