Discover the mountains trails in and around Chamonix by running!
World-class trails, adventurous terrain and a food / accommodation arrangement that will fit perfectly after a day on the trails.
Do you want to:
- Run on trails in the mountains?
- Get stronger at running altitude meters, both up and down?
- Develop your skills on more technical and adventurous trails?
- Experience trails away from the crowd?
- Have everything in addition to running served in the form of transport, food and local knowledge?
- Meet lots of nice people who also answer yes to the questions above?
The trip between 31/7 - 4/8
Is meant for those who have been running a fair bit, but have not been moving mountain terrain alot.
Have the following in mind to know if this is for you or not:
- 20-25 km on trais a few days in the row.
- Its not mandatiry to haev run a bigger race or so, the most important is that you enjoy running.
- Need to be used to move oni trails.
- Pace: 6-6.30 min/km on flat trail. Cover about 4-500 vertical meters and hour. If you struggle to know about your vertical speed thats totaly fine, thats what this trip is there to explore.
We will be moving to trails. Sometimes these trails a very easy, sometimes they are a bit more technical and sometimes they are way to bumpy for running to be an option. We simply adapt.
It is worth noting that some of the climbs and verticals that we do are so steep and consistent that they will be covered by walking. Some days we might do more than an hour or two before starting to run again. Seldom will we be running for more than 30-45 minutes before walking or taking a break. All this in order to be able to move the whole day.
If you have any questions regarding the info above, send an email to Morgan. Info can be found further down.
