Please contact me if this 3-day trail running program in Aravis sounds interesting. Then I will explain you all the details. If this program would not match your expectations, I can of course present you with other options. I offer programs in the Alps but also in other places, for beginners and more experienced trail runners. It will be my pleasure to guide and coach you on these awesome mountain trails. For example, other programs for beginners include this one in the Beaufortain.
