Plus a unique and spectacular setting, the Valle d’Aosta.
The Tor des Géants, Valle d’Aosta dialect for “tour of the giants” , is the first and only trail competition run individually over a long distance.
It starts and finishes in Courmayeur Mont Blanc but is run on spectacular footpaths throughout the entire Valle d’Aosta, at the foot of the most impressive 4000ers in the Alps.
Considered the hardest ultra-trail in the world, the route starts and finishes in Courmayeur Mont Blanc and follows the two High Level Paths (Alte Vie) in the Valle d'Aosta over a total distance of around 330 km (200 miles) with 24,000 metres of vertical ascent. It starts off on the AV no. 2 in the direction of the lower valley then returns by the AV no. 1.
There are several rest, food and recovery points along the route. The Tor des Géants is a spectacular ultra-trail competition, unique for its length, the beauty of its landscapes, its difficulty, and the enormous exhilaration felt by everyone taking part, competitors, spectators and volunteers alike.
