The Mont-Blanc 80km race more wild and technical!
In only 2 editions, the Mont-Blanc 80KM race has become legendary in the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley. With its 82km and 6000 meters of vertical, it has been recognized as one of the most technical trail races in France. The 80KM race is difficult but it is also one of the most beautiful! This year the course has evolved, mainly to avoid towns and favor secluded trails.
The Mont-Blanc Marathon and Cross
With 12 and 37 editions respectively, the organizers, always striving to offer exceptional courses, wish to bring a few new ideas to make the adventure even more beautiful and more enjoyable!
In order to ameliorate the course out of Argentiere, the runners rejoin the Planet by the Rambles climb. The veterans will appreciate returning to the race's roots by finishing the course following the GR out of the combe de la Charlanon, then climbing Pain de Sucre and arriving to 'Altitude 2000'.
To make the race marshals' job easier, the 10km race course will be reversed after the Aveyron Hotel. The runners will take the same course as the Cross and Marathon runners to avoid the possible confusion regarding orientation in the peloton. Tighter race markings will also be put in place.
