"de Martigny-Combe à Chamonix"

40 km of festivities created for volunteers and local inhabitants.

The runners will leave from Martigny-Combe (Switzerland) along an itinerary to finish in Chamonix. 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, will have priority for this race. The route of 40 km with no less than 2300m ascent, 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. The organisation is ensuring that this new event will be conceived with the same high standard qualities as their other races. 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.
