Description of the race:

Fabulous trip that is offered to you here. What can I say, except that the higher you go, the more beautiful it will be. From the start on the alleys of Etigny, you will go up towards the Hospice de France by a pretty path in the undergrowth, skirting the river “the Pique” for a while. Once out of the forest, you discover the Hospice de France and the climb to the mythical and historic Port de Vénasque.

Arrived there, it will be impossible for you not to stop for a few moments as the panorama which stretches out in front of you is impressive. The Pic des Mulleres, just to the left of the Pic d'Aneto awaits you. You enter the high mountain domain to reach the highest point of the race at more than 3000m. Going down, you will pass the Trou du Toro, resurgence of the Garonne, then take the direction of the Port de la Picade to descend through the valley to Luchon. After such a trip, the return to the alleys of Etigny is a bit brutal, but so happy to have made this journey, a smile will be on your faces when you cross the finish line.
