The Col des Chevaux has become part of the race – a change that makes the route even more Alpine!

Starting at La Fouly, the runners are directed to the sublime Lacs de Fenêtre, the Col du Grand St-Bernard, the Col des Chevaux and the Col de Mille; and the race then continues past Panossière in its wonderful setting. The view of the Grand Combin (4314m) and the crossing of the Corbassière footbridge (190m long) are the high points of the X-Traversée. The ascent of the 1200m “wall” is the final challenge in this magnificent route.
