La 6D Lacs

6D LACS-Pictot

6000D edition 2021, 31 years of pleasure… July 22 to 24

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!

Individual challenge, accessible to all

Starting and finishing in Plagne Bellecôte, this 28km trail race has 1500 m of elevation gain and is less demanding than the 6000D but with an equally beautiful and remarkable course.

The atmosphere 6D Lacs

There will be a large, enthusiastic crowd all along the trail to cheer you on you during the 31th edition, on Saturday, July 24th 2021. Roche de Mio / Glacier access possible by cable car for guides.

In order to be as close as possible to the Trail spirit, there is only 1 refreshment point (food and drinks) and 1 water point (drinks only) over the 28 km. A camel bag or a gourd holder is strongly recommended.
Running in self-sufficiency is recommended.
