The race changes itenanery from time to time but it is similar every year starting from Chamonix, going trough Lavancher, Argentiere, Vallorcine, then back to the Col des Montets, Flegere and finishing at the Plan Praz, a beautiful trail that traversses all the Chamonix Mont Blanc valley.

It is a semi autonomous race that provides 4 refreshment stops along the itinerary, it is advised to take your own suplies though since it can get very hot at the end of June and you might need refreshment along the trail between stops.
