Technitrail des Glaciers

28th to 29th September 2024

Technitrail des Glaciers: A Challenge for Experienced Trail Runners through the Vallée des Chapieux

The TPSB, scheduled for 28-29 September 2024, is the last high-altitude trail of the year. The programme includes a range of events in the heart of the wild mountains, from the Km Vertical to the Ultra. This trail is considered by the purists of the discipline to be one of the finest mountain trails in France: authenticity with a touch of technicality and rusticity in all simplicity. The start/finish of all the events is at Les Chapieux-Bourg Saint Maurice (73700).
