The mythical adventure: the Vaud Alps experience tour!
An exceptional start for an exceptional race: The fantastic Chillon Castle, a beautiful example of a medieval landmark from where the race is starting. A race that honors the mountains and limits to a strict minimum the flat and road sections and all that keeps the runner away from the mountains and nature. It will start with a first climb of … 1600 m of positive elevation towards the Rochers de Naye, and sets the tone for the remainder of the race. After crossing the Pays d'Enhaut and the Diablerets regions, it will be time to climb to the "Col des Pauvres" and its gorgeous views on the Muveran range. Followed by a magnificent way back through Grand-Chamossaire 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!
