After a downhill start, you’ll pass in front of the fabulous Brochaux waterfall to climb up to the Col de Chesery and its refuge. For the OUREA Xtrem athletes, for the 2nd time in one week, you’ll make an incursion into Switzerland. Next, you’ll head along Vert Lake to the famous pass at the Portes du Soleil. There you’ll run along a ridge leading to the Pointe de l’Au for 5km as far as the Pointe Savolaire before diving down to Morgins. From there you’ll attack the climb up to Le Morclan overhanging Châtel, which will welcome you with an aid station. The return to Avoriaz 1800 will take in the base of the Morgins valley leading to the Chesery refuge, then the GR5 up to the Rochassons ridge before dropping down to Lindarets and making one last climb up to Avoriaz 1800.Using the chairlifts from Avoriaz 1800, spectators will be able to cheer on the trail runners at 2 hotspots (see Spectators’ page)
