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. 

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. 
This route, which follows that of the 6000D, will branch off at Dérochoir to go towards Plan Bois and go back up to Arpette to join the 6000D route and then descend to Plagne Bellecôte.

The atmosphere 6D Lacs

There will be a large, enthusiastic crowd throughout the event to cheer for you during the 32th edition, on FRIDAY July 29, 2022 (Note : CHANGE OF DAY AND TIME).
If you want to cheer the runners, access possible to the Roche de Mio for accompanying persons.

NOTE : Following a work the gondola on the Roche de Mio line up to the Glacier will be closed all summer.

In order to be as close as possible to the spirit of the Trail, there is only 1 food and drink station and 1 water station (drinks only) on the 28 km. A camel bag or water bottle holder is highly recommended.
It is recommended to run self-sufficiently.
