The TOR450 - Tor des Glaciers is an exceptional and unmissable event, launched to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the TOR330 - Tor des Géants®.
An endurance test reserved exclusively for 200 runners 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 TOR450 - Tor des Glaciers will start out from Courmayeur at 8pm on Friday, 10th September 2021, and finish on Saturday, 18 September at 6pm, in Courmayeur.
The maximum time allowed for the race is 190 hours.
The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, 19 September at the Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center.*
To participate in the TOR450 - Tor des Glaciers you must have completed a TOR330 - Tor des Géants® event in less than 130 hours (120 hours for the 2012 event - stop after Gressoney OUT for 2015).
*Important note regarding the SARS COV 2 pandemic (COVID 19)
Due of the pandemic it is difficult to predict what the situation will be at the time of the event. Over the next few months we will be taking every possible measure to ensure TORX® 2021 can go ahead, in accordance with the rules introduced periodically by national and international authorities. The program will be updated accordingly, as necessary. Any substantial changes will be communicated via the newsletter which is published on the website and all official race channels.
