MXtrem160

164km and 11’999 m D+

An exceptional start for an exceptional race: The fantastic Chillon Castle. It is a beautiful example of a medieval landmark from where this first edition of the race will start. A race that honours the mountains and limits to a strict minimum the flat and road sections and all that keeps the runner away from the mountains and the nature. It will start with a first climb of … 1600 m of positive elevation towards that will set the tone for the rest of the race. After crossing the Pays d'Enhaut and the Diablerets regions, it will be time to take the "Col des Pauvres" uphill with it’s gorgeous views on the Muveran range. Followed by a magnificent way back through Villars-sur-Ollon and Leysin before finishing with the majestic gorges of Chauderon after a descent … of 1,600 meters!

MAGICAL, right? Well it is EXCEPTIONAL! The decision is yours!
