To create a project of this dimension, the “Dénivelé Positif” (Positive elevation) association was created by Diego Pazos and Cédric Agassis whom are big passionates of « Ultra » efforts and mountains.

Voted Swiss Ultra Trail Runner of the year in 2015 and nominated as one of the three finalists of the « Mérite sportif vaudois » (Vaud sports merit) award 2016, he’s among the best in the world in his discipline. Always accompanied by his bowtie, he always has a thought for others during his efforts.There is no doubt that this event will be at his image, full of sharing, emotions and fun.
