Simon Berger Park in Faverges-Seythenex

On Friday, the event village opens and kids can race, too.


The beauty of this particular trail run

Each circuit takes you on the beautiful trails through Bauges Mountains Natural Regional Park in search of chamois and wild sheep, along the wild mountainous terrain between Annecy and Albertville. At the high points along each circuit, marvel at views of the surrounding ranges: the Bornes, Aravis, Belledonne, and Beaufortain mountains. The view of Lake Annecy, far below, will simply take your breath away. And don’t be surprised if you catch a glimpse or two of mighty Mt. Blanc!
