A race through extraordinary landscapes
A new 30k race on technical trails through unparalleled landscapes, designed for specialists but open to anyone who wants to experience the allure of mountain racing. The TOR30 - Passage au Malatrà is a highly emotional experience in a magical, high-altitude setting. Crossing the narrow Col de Malatrà pass at an altitude of 2925 metres is like passing through the 'gateway to Paradise'. Not just because of the vast, imposing landscape - with the entire Mont Blanc range on one side and the ridges of the Grand Corbin that reach heights of over 4300 metres on the other - but also because Malatrà marks the beginning of the most fascinating stretch of the Tor des Géants®, descending through wide valleys and woods and delivering runners to the finishing line in Courmayeur.
The TOR30 - Passage au Malatrà comes under the 'short' race category, but does requires knowledge and preparation, in terms of both the differences in altitude that the athletes will confront, and the altitude at which the race is run.
Nevertheless, the commitment is amply rewarded with a natural environment that is found nowhere else in the world.
The TOR30 - Passage au Malatrà will take place on Saturday, 18 September 2021, starting out at 10am in Saint-Rhémy-En-Bosses in the Grand St. Bernard valley, at a height of 1521 metres.
The finish line is in Courmayeur, where you should arrive by 6pm on the same day.
The maximum time allowed for the race is 8 hours
The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, 19 September at the Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center.*
