La 6000D en relais à 3

Logo 6000D en relais

Since 2018, the 6000D has been opened up to the greatest number of people and is available as a relay.
Since in 2023, this one will run for 3 people instead of 2.

A mythical race and the first of its kind at the time, the 6000D remains a challenge for most trail runners.
So for the 2024 edition, we propose that you run it in a rely with 3 people passing the baton at Plagne Center and Plagne Bellecote.

2nd edition of this challenge for 3 people, accessible to all

A total course of 69km to be run at 3.

A route that takes runners from the village of Aime in the valley to the top of the Bellecôte Glacier at an altitude of 3050m, with a passage through the high altitude resorts of Grande Plagne and then down through the forest at Montchavin les Côches to finish along the Isère river. A high quality marked route, 95% on paths and tracks.

The 6000D atmosphere

For this 34rd year, a large and enthusiastic public will encourage you all along the 6000D course on SATURDAY 27 JULY 2024.

Access to the new Glacier “Live 3000” will be open for summer 2024 with its new gondola, possibility of stopping at Roche de Mio and the Col de la Chiaupe. An incredible view awaits you at 3050 meters.
