A SURPRISING ADVENTURE
Start in Courmayeur, an iconic village in the Mont Blanc landscape, and embark on a 15km race with a beastly 1200 meters of total elevation gain in the heart of the Italian Alps. This summer, the course will evolve slightly with a more progressive climb up to the impressive balconies of the Aosta Valley, facing the Mont-Blanc, before continuing on to complete the loop back into Courmayeur. This appealing yet challenging format is ideal for runners who would like to put themselves to the test and be part of the Dacia UTMB® Mont-Blanc.
Be careful, short format does not always mean simple format: the ETC features 15 kilometers and 1200 meters of elevation gain. In trail running, we often talk about "kilometer effort", considering both the distance and elevation gain to calculate the perceived distance: the km-effort is calculated by adding 1km to the race distance for every 100 meters of elevation gain. The ETC is therefore 27 km-effort of wonder, sharing and challenging your limits!
In other words, the Experience Trail Courmayeur contains amazing landscapes in the heart of the Italian Alps, a great challenge to enter the trail running adventure and the possibility to taste an authentic pizza just after crossing the finish line.
