The Hospice du Petit-Saint-Bernard, northwest of Bourg St Maurice in France, and on the France-Italy border, is the start and finish of these two mountain races. Starting just on theĀ French side of the border, the 40km race takes participants on a course over three mountain passes above 2500 meters and into Italy. This race can also be run as a relay of two.

The races takes place in the fall, before the snow arrives to these high mountain trails.
