A trail for experienced trail runners with mountain feet!

Spectator program :

L'Échappée Belle offers 3 exceptional routes, linking Isère and Savoie, through the Belledonne massif:
1) Échappée Belle intégrale: 152 km and 11,390 m D+, solo or duo, from Vizille to Aiguebelle
2) Traversée Nord: 92 km and 6,740 m D+ solo from Fond-de-France to Aiguebelle (new route)
3) Parcours des Crêtes: 63 km and 4,770 m D+ from Allevard to Aiguebelle
+ Skyrace du Rocher Blanc: 21 km and 2,000 m D+ from Fond-de-France (Haut-Bréda)
Much more than an ultra-trail, it's an adventure... To preserve the friendly nature of the race, the number of places is limited to 500 per race (+ 100 places for the 152km duos).

Registration opens in January on the event website! For the Échappée Belle Intégrale solo and duo, the Traversée Nord and the Parcours des crêtes, the results of the draw will be announced in early February. Registration for the Skyrace is by application.
