La 6D Lacs

6D LACS-Pictot

6000D edition 2022, 32 years of pleasure… July 28 to 30

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 32th edition, on FRIDAY July 29, 2022 (ATTENTION CHANGE OF DAY AND TIME).
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.

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.
