HIGH TRAIL VANOISE - 70KM 5400M D+ (SOLO & DUO)
The Odlo High Trail Vanoise is a unique and an incredible race.
Technical and tough, the Odlo High Trail Vanoise starts from the ski resort and typical village of Val d’Isère before reaching the village on the other side of the mountain, the resort of Tignes
From there, runners will reach the summit on the glacier of « la Grande Motte » a little under 12,000 feet (3653 metres high). The route is steep, and near the summit, ropes will be placed to assist runners. From the top you will discover breath-taking sceneries like the « Ouillette lake » or the « lost Valley ».
The departure will take place on Saturday the 6th of July 2019 at 4 am in front of the club des sports
To offer the participants a larger choice, and give more trailers the opportunity to run up the “Grande Motte Glacier” with your race partner. we have decided to create a DUO race.

Time barriers have been calculated to their ultimate limits so that you’ll have enough time to finish the HTV. No runners, whatever the reason, will be allowed to run beyond those precise limits, for safety reasons. Participants must conform to the time and to the controllers’ instructions. They must well organize their race so that they will not have to rush to finish the race.
