La 6D Verticale

Logo 6000D

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

The 6D Verticale is a hill climb for all levels of runner (beginner, intermediate or experienced) so that everyone can participate in the great 6000D weekend.
The 5 km climb with 1000 m vertical rise leaving from La Roche (Village of Olympic Bobsleigh track ) will take you up to the top of the Grande Rochette above Plagne Centre.

The atmosphere 6000D

There will be a large, enthusiastic crowd all along the trail to cheer you on you during the 31th edition, on Friday, July 23th 2021. 

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 5 km. A camel bag or a gourd holder is strongly recommended.

Running in self-sufficiency is recommended.
