The Ecrins National Park In the southern French Alps is a land of high peaks, deep valleys, glaciers and untamed beauty. It is wilder than most of the well-known Alpine areas and has qualified for the European Diploma of Protected Areas.
The races all take part in the National Park. The 80 km race begins in Vaujany and the first ascents are to the Col du Sabot (2100m) and then the Col du Couard at 2334m. By dawn you will arrive at the lakes of Plan des Cavalles with a crossing at over 2700m elevation. Once over the Col de Sarenne at 1999m, you enter the Ferrand Valley and attack the last ascent to the ski resort of Les 2 Alpes, where you’ll be greeted warmly by the organisation team.
If the 80 km sounds a little too much, you could opt for either the 30km or 15km race and enjoy cheering-on the other runners coming in after you’re done!
