12 to 14 km, D +950m / -950m
A nice run going up will allow us to discover a stunning view on Mont Blanc, very close from us. We will go through different types of trail paths around the village, pass by lakes and traditional alpine villages while having the renowned peaks of the Beaufortain above us.
15 to 19 km, D +1300m / -1300m.
This will be a nice trail running day in the mountains during which we will take our lunch up there in order to fully enjoy the wild and alpine atmosphere of Beaufortain. We will pass by Lac de Roselend, Pierra Menta, Grand Fond pass… and if we are lucky we might see chamois, ibex, eagles and gypaètes. We will take different types of paths: large trails, single tracks… You will learn how to run safely in the mountains and how to slowly get your feet used to these terrains and environment. At the end of the afternoon you have the possibility to get a massage (extra fee).
14 to 16 km, D +1000m / -1000m.
During the last day, we will go for a 4-hour session in order to put in practice all the things we will have learned during the 2 previous days: how to walk in order to last for long distances / hours, how to save energy while going down, how to run up efficiently, how to use poles, how to manage your efforts… This last session will also allow us to enjoy for the last time the stunning views of Beaufortain! Because doing trail is not only about running. It’s also about taking the time to look around and enjoy the nature surrounding us.
