About the race

The Cross du Velan takes place above the Entremont valley, one of the most stunning valleys in all of Switzerland. At the end of the valley is the famous St. Bernard Monastery, high in the alps on the border with Italy. The course starts in the little hamlet of Bourg St. Pierre, passes through long pastures, climbs to the Cabane de Mille on the Tour des Combins hiking route, and then traverses high above the valley, incorporating a high alpine setting, while passing Cabane du Valsorey and Cabane du Vélean. A 21 km race, ending at Azerin, is also available as an option. For shorter options, runners can also choose from the 15 km discovery trail, and the 6.8 km Cross du Vélan race, which climbs 1,010 meters.

Le P’tit Cross includes three kids race distances: 500m, 1000m and 1700m.
