This race has the vocation of strengthening the teams. It is for this reason that the volunteers, as well as the inhabitants of the Espace Mont-Blanc have priority for this race. The route climbs up through the vines of Martigny-Combe to the col de la Forclaz then the col de Balme will appeal to the participants’ uphill capacities and already it has the air of being an eminently festive race with its descent from the col de Balme to Chamonix. This race is the chance for a taster, over a more accessible distance, of the pleasure of participating in the World Summit of Trail-Running.
By starting on Monday morning, it will only be run during daytime which will mean that each volunteer can join their team for the rest of the week. The event will pass along little known paths and give the participants a route through the most beautiful hamlets in Chamonix’s upper valley.
