Trail des 6 cols

TRAIL DES 6 COLS - 42KM 3500M 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 6th of July 2019 at 8:00 in front of the club des sports
