Distance 330 km
Elevation 24000 m
Considered one of the hardest races in the world, the Tor des Géants (TDG or the Tor) course covers an astounding 330 kilometers with over 24,000 meters of elevation gain. It starts in Courmayeur, Italy and then winds its way through the Valle d’Aosta. Runners will take trails at the foot of the highest 4,000-meter peaks in the Alps and travel through the Gran Paradiso Natural Park and the Mont Avic Regional Park. The time limit for this extremely challenging course is 150 hours.
There is also a shorter version of the race, the Tot Dret, which follows the last 130km of the TDG route.
