La 6000D en relais à 2

Logo 6000D en relais

Since 2018, the 6000D has been open to the greatest number and is available as a 2-man relay to give access to this benchmark race in the world of trail running on saturday, July 30, 2022

The 6000D, a legendary race and the first of its kind, is still considered a challenge by most trail runners. Climbing from the apple orchards up to the glacier is a real feat!
So for the 2022 edition, we suggest you run it with 2 people in a relay with a handover at La Roche de Mio.
Attention change for the 2022 edition because the Roche de Mio gondola at the Glacier will not be open following work on the line.

4th edition of this challenge for 2 people, accessible to all

3400m of elevation gain over a 67km course that takes participants from the village of Aime la Plagne in the valley to the top of Bellecôte glacier at 3047m via La Plagne’s different altitude villages, then coming back down through the forest to Montchavin les Côches and finishing along the Isère river.

If you are ever alone and looking for a partner, please contact the organization that will centralize people.

The atmosphere 6000D

The trail is well marked with 95% of it on regular walking paths. There will be a large, enthusiastic crowd all along the trail to cheer you on you during the 32st edition, on Saturday, July 30th 2022.
Access possible to the Roche de Mio for accompanying persons. Following work on the Roche de Mio gondola line to the Glacier, it will be closed all summer.
