The Tor des Glaciers is an exceptional and unmissable event, launched to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Tor des Géants®.
An endurance test reserved exclusively for 100 ultratrailers chosen to take on the little-known trails and ridges of the Valle d'Aosta, to add a spark of adventure to the competition aspect.
A group of people whose names will go down in the annals of the TOR as those who took part in a competition that may never be repeated, and can claim membership of the exclusive high altitude ultratrailers club.
Most of the trail's 450k route is along the forgottent Alte Vie 3 and 4. It crosses ridges that are largely unknown and touches on ancient glaciers far away from the usual trekking routes. These paths are frequented only by people who are in their element in Alpine landscapes, adore solitude and appreciate the grandeur of the high peaks.
A truly exclusive, unique and unmissable trial that you will undertake completely alone, with only the magnificent high-altitude lodges for reference points and support.
The Tor des Glaciers will start out from Courmayeur at 8pm on Friday, 6 September 2019, and finish on Saturday, 14 September at 6pm, in Courmayeur.
The maximum time allowed for the race is 190 hours.
The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, 15 September at the Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center.
