Reconnaissance Weekend | Dents du Midi Trail

Experience one of Europe's oldest mountain trail races with a little help from a pro !

Tempted to sign on for the legendary Dents du Midi Trail this September? Perhaps you’re interested in experiencing an iconic trail race without the pressure of competition? Either way,  this reconnaissance weekend is for you! Accompanied by a seasoned trail runner who has already participated in the race, you will cover the 57 km and 3'700m of elevation gain in 1 day and a half with a well-deserved night's rest at the Auberge de Salanfe. This is the perfect way to identify the technical points of the course and see if you are ready for the main event. Even if you don’t sign up for the race, the highly-prized souvenir 32K or 57K race bib is yours for the keeping at the end of the weekend!
