Trail running offers

In just a few years, Chamonix Valley-Mont Blanc has become a favourite trail running destination.
Its history, the conquest of Mont Blanc, the way it is laid out — a choice of fast and exposed routes with a variety of total height differences — attract thousands of trail runners from all over the world during the summer season.

Here, running becomes a magnificent experience in amazing natural surroundings.    
The trails in the Chamonix Valley are unique. The running is at altitudes between 1,000 and 4,810 m, and is always dominated by Mont Blanc and the surrounding range. The pleasure of running goes hand in hand with the ever-changing and unique scenery, and every step is rewarded by the amazing spectacle of the surrounding peaks.
