Trail des 6 cols - 39km 3200m D+ (solo & duo)


Race Description

Shorter doesn’t mean easier on this race. Indeed, there are fewer kilometres on the counter of this race, compared to the “Grand Parcours of Odlo High Trail Vanoise but it doesn’t mean less intensity for the racers. The winners will be the fittest and the most physically and mentally prepared. This shorter trail will offer the best views all along the trail: the Grande Sassière nature reserve, the climbing of the Aiguille Pers ( 3386 meters high ) the passage of the Lessières tunnel (original and unique passage of the tunnel at 3000 meters high).

Departure on Saturday the 7th of July 2018 at 8:00 from the centre of the village and ski resort of Val d'Isère

NEW in 2018! The “2-person race” on the 6-pass race

After carefully listening to our runners, we will offer a “2-person-race” on the 6-pass race. This will allow a team ranking. Remember that the 2-person-race will have to arrive together at every time checkpoints.  If it is not the case, time penalties will be added to their final time.
