There is still a week left before pre-registration for the Tor des Géants® 2016 closes and we have reached 2050 athletes aspiring to participate in the seventh edition of the great race of Val D' Aosta. The absolute record for the number of countries represented in the race, 70, has already been surpassed.
The organizers are already fully active, although there are still seven months left before the event. The arrival of new international sponsors has strengthened the value of the race even more, as well as its image in various countries, and has motivated our team to work hard.
The organizing company, VDA Trailers, is very satisfied with the strong support received from volunteers, athletes, and the main sponsors. Even the requests for accreditation from the international press for live reports on the race in the various media, television, radio, the printed press, and on-line newspapers, are more numerous than usual. The stories will also be “broadened” to cover the environment, traditions, and products of Val D' Aosta. Lastly, the team responsible for the safety of the runners has also been strengthened, since this is always a priority for the organizing committee.
