Situated on the north side above the Arve Valley above Le Fayet, the Fiz mountain chain will charm you with it’s trails and views of Mont Blanc.
There are various distances (or number of mountain huts!) that you run past or visit during your race, the Tour des Fiz 61 km, is the longest race, following the well known walking circuit though two natural reserves of Passy and Sixt. This race can be ran solo or as a relay team.
The Petit Tour 30 km, starts and ends in the town of Passy, you past five refuges but will certainly appreciate the undeveloped feeling of the alpine landscape and great hospitalitiy along the way.
The Balcons des Fiz 15 km is offered for the younger and beginner trail runners, the two loops around the ski station of Plaine-Joux will certainly tempt you to return for more next year.
The Montée au refuge de Varan begins in the village of Bay and after 550 m of climbing you reach the finish line at the Refuge de Varan nestled at 1620 m.
