Verbier Marathon 43km – 3500m D+

A first big ascent up to Mille Hut where you will join both longer long routes. The second aid station is waiting for you at the Brunet hut before crossing the Avouillons pass to reach the bottom of the Grand Combin, its glacier and the Panossière hut. Crossing the suspension bridge will be the hottest spot of this section. By the end of the race you will still have to face “the wall”, the Lourtier – La Chaux uphill in order to be able to run down to Verbier.

Verbier Marathon 4000 – 46km – 4000m D+ – (Alternative)

2021 NEWS !! An atractive alternative is organised this year: Once in col de Mille, if you wish (and are able to) you can choose for a little detour to reach a summit of more than 3000m. This will add 600m of positive denivelation along the ridge of Mt Rogneux up to the top (3084m). The trail then goes down alongside some mountain lakes to reach the Brunet hut where you will join the classical Verbier Marathon.
