About us

Amandine and Gaël MAINARD

Gaël, retired professional triathlete from 1996 to 2006, member of the French long distance team, 3 participations in the Hawaii IRONMAN, 2 years as an ELITE cyclist, various trail running event participations with 3x finishers of the “Grand Raid de la Reunion”in 2013, 2015 and 2018. Amandine, former volley ball athlete and triathlete, practices trail running and swimrunning, qualified as a pharmacist. In 2010, we took the leap in event organising, with the desire to create a sports competition for a sport we are both very passionate about. For 7 years we organised an international triathlon based in Vichy, this soon became an IRONMAN that we watched over as Race directors.Our partnership works well thanks to our complementarity, Gael with his sports driven vision and event organising experience ; Amandine with her attention to detail and rigour, and our common desire to live an extraordinary human adventure.Two years ago, we quit the triathlon world to head over to the trail running industry, we wanted to start our own project from a complete blank page implementing our own values.Nous vous laissons découvrir cet événement via le site internet et vous attendons à Avoriaz 1800 en 2020 pour fouler les magnifiques sentiers du domaine des Portes du Soleil.For more in depth information on this event head over to our website. We look forward to meeting you in Avoriaz 1800 in 2020 for a magnificent run on the stunning trails of the Portes du Soleil area. GAMAO: Opérateur de voyages et de séjours, immatriculé Atout France IM06319004 –Garantie Financière: GROUPAMA ASSURANCE-CRÉDIT & CAUTION, 8-10 RUE D’ASTORG, 75008 PARIS, FRANCE –Assurance RCP: ALLIANZ IARD, 1 COURS MICHELET, CS 30051 , 92076 PARIS LA DÉFENSE, FRANCE


Marielle BRINGERÉric AMATTEISLes Traileurs des Sommets association are co-organisers of the event & will take care of various aspects. Of course the event was planned following a well defined eco responsibility, in line with our values, those of Avoriaz 1800 and the trail running community. The measures put in place will be presented this year.Adding to the eco responsible aspect we will be teaching our younger generation how to help preserve the breathtaking wildlife that surrounds us. To do this we will have workshops throughout the week for children.Last but not least, our event would not see the light of day without the help of many volunteers who will assemble during the week of the event to live and share some unforgettable human and trail running experiences.We can’t wait to meet everyone during the OUREA week ! Until then we hope you have a good time training !
