Guidebook: Trail Running Chamonix

From our home in Chamonix, France, Run the Alps is delighted to share our trail running guidebook to the region, Trail Running Chamonix Mont Blanc: Must-Do Trail Runs in France, Switzerland, and Italy. These online pages support the main guidebook, available around the world in French and English.

How does this online component work? 

Simple. Select any one of the 30 runs below, and go to the individual run page. There, you’ll get a summary of the run, photos, and helpful ratings. You’ll also be able to download the GPX files for the run, the bonus run, and the bailout option.

If you don’t have it already, be sure to grab a copy of the book! It includes full route descriptions, insider tips from Run the Alps, public transport access information, trail running tips, useful information on the region, and much more.

Happy trail running!
