Start: Saturday July 8th, 2023 at 9 am, from Piazza Abbé Henry, Courmayeur
Arrival: Jardin de l’Ange, after having paraded throughout the central street of Courmayeur
The route winds along paths in the Courmayeur area for a total of approximately 30km, mainly along Val Ferret, with a positive elevation gain of 2,000 metres. After the departure on Saturday at 7 am from Piazza Abbé Henry in Courmayeur (1250m ASL), the race heads towards La Saxe and takes the path that ascends to the Bertone refuge (refreshment point, 1977m ASL).
The magnificent Val Ferret balcony takes runners up to the Bonatti refuge and the Malatrà valley, which marks the approximate half-way point of the race.
The ascent of the last two hills, Entre deux Sauts (2524m ASL), where a refreshment area is set up, and Col Sapin (2435m ASL), starts from here, followed by a descent through Curru, La Suche and L’Ermitage, returning to the finish point at Jardin de l’Ange in Courmayeur.
The maximum time allowed for the race is 8 hours. The track is technical with considerable differences in altitude and the possibility of snowfields, but is run along paths that present no particular difficulties.
Sections on paved roads are kept to a minimum and only on public roads where the route passes through built-up areas.
There are several rescue points and refreshment points along the route. Before leaving a refreshment point, runners must ensure they have enough food and water to last them until the next one. The final refreshment point in Courmayeur will supply hot meals.
