A 40 km race specially created for UTMB volunteers and locals. Runners leave from Martigny-Combe (Switzerland) and join Chamonix following a 40 km course with 2300 m positive elevation.

This race aims to weld the teams. This is why volunteers and residents of Espace Mont-Blanc will benefit from a priority on this race. It will allow you to taste, on a more accessible distance, the pleasure of participating in the World Summit of the Trail. The organization ensures that this new event is designed with the same quality standards as its predecessors. It will take place entirely by day and allow each volunteer to join his team for the rest of the week. The event will evolve on new paths and will offer participants a crossing of the most beautiful hamlets of the upper Chamonix Valley.An unprecedented Franco-Swiss route.Very attached to the coherence of the proposed courses, the organization proposes a new route. Runners will progress between the vineyards of the Valais hills, the typical hamlets of the upper Chamonix Mont-Blanc valley, to discover the Chosalets, Lavancher, Tour or the Woods and of course Argentière. In the heart of fir and larch forests, runners will appreciate some remarkable passages including the Bisse de Trient, a historic canal, which was used to carry water from glaciers to villages and alpine pastures. As for lovers of altitude, they will not be left with the climb of the Col de Balme (2190m) marking the Franco-Swiss border. From there, the participants will be able to admire the granite ridge of the Grandes Au-Tannes and the mountain pastures that welcome the source of the Arve!40 km & 2 300 m D + - 1 000 runners - Departure 26/08 (to be confirmed) at 10:00 from Martigny-Combe - First arrivals (to be confirmed) the 2/08 at 20h in ChamonixForecast of the passage times in the Valley (to be confirmed):Chalets de Balme on 26/08 from 11:48 to 15:35The Tour on 26/08 from 12:08 to 16:37Argentière on 26/08 from 12:24 to 17:27The Lavancher the 26/08 from 12:45 to 17:31The Woods on 26/08 from 12:59 to 19:17
