Top Trail Running Trips in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
The changing terrain and scenery make no two trails identical. The only constants are fresh alpine air and uncapturable views. Visit in the summer months of June to September for prime running conditions.
The commune of Chamonix-Mont Blanc is located in the Haute-Savoie region in the southeast of France, resting close to the borders of Italy and Switzerland. As the site of the very first Winter Olympics in 1924, it has built a world-class reputation for outdoor activities and is one of the oldest ski resorts in the country. It’s natural mountainous beauty makes it ideal for scenic trail running through its valleys.
Highly influenced by the mountainous terrain, summers are characterized by warm temperatures, between highs of 24℃ in June and July, and 20℃ in August and September.
If you’re hoping to explore the Chamonix-Mont Blanc by running its trails then trips can last 1 or more days. Yet the region offers a depth of outdoor activities which can also be done during the summer months, including biking, hiking and rock climbing. So if you have extra time then trips to the region could last around 1 week.
Visit in the summer months of June to September.
Awesome and very well organised
We were taken good care of by James. He met us for drinks when we arrived and told us about the area in Chamonix. We found his way of thinking of trailrunning and his experience so interesting. Unfortunatly he had to take care of his father who was sick, the day we had planned our trip.
He arranged that Tony Sbalbi would take us. We had some problems understanding eachother, but he took good care of us. And we had an amazing day doing the trip we had planned with James. We walked up to Plan de I’aiguille, and run to mer de glace, and then down to Chamonix by the forrest. We really loved it!
Nature, working hard and adrenalin!
We can’t wait to go back! Thank you!

La guía Carol excepcional. Muy simpática, atenta y con extensos conocimientos sobre la actividad a realizar y la zona. Totalmente recomendable. En cuanto pueda repetiré.
Great trip. Good balanced program, valuable tips from experienced guide and breathtaking environment.
