The Salomon Over the Mountain Running Challenge 2018 ,

will successively evolve on the slopes of Ventoux, the Belgian Ardennes,

the peaks around Lake Annecy, the foothills of Mont-Blanc,

those of Pic d'Aneto and the Ubaye valley.

“Over the Mountain” reflects a desire to be independent, community-based and open to all:

practitioners, organizations, federations and concretize the fact that our mountain playgrounds are superb!

2018 will be marked by continuity with the six 2017 stages renewed.

This is a first after fourteen editions under different names.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

This is a request from loyal runners who in 2017 found the right balance between geography and diversity of terrain, through a calendar large enough to have rest periods.

We will always focus on the distance close to the marathon.

It brings together the most athletes of all levels and allows them to express themselves as they wish.

Suddenly, this will also allow everyone to work in continuity.

We offer improvements, particularly in terms of hospitality, friendliness or purely sporting.

The 2018 edition still includes 6 races over 6 months, 3 rankings with a men's scratch,

woman and man hope and mileage close to the marathon distance.

On the payment side, we keep the same recipes: only the 3 best results are taken into account,

in order to have "jokers" or to be able to be classified on the circuit without having to do all the races.

The top five in each category are invited to participate in the final.

The opportunity to join the 2019 Salomon team returns for the three winners man, woman and hope man, following the strong wishes of the regulars of the circuit and will crown their season.

This circuit is also a great and already long adventure for trail running enthusiasts who often work in the shadows, in order to offer beautiful meetings to runners and contribute to the media coverage of our sport. Go from Ventoux to the Belgian Ardennes, from the Northern Alps to the Pyrenees and finish in the Southern Alps: the perfect opportunity to rediscover our beautiful trails and regions.

16th edition. The Trail du Ventoux is to run towards a mythical summit which flirts with 2000 m at the end of winter.

The spring which points its nose under the 1200 meters and often above the winter which makes resistance with the snow on the ridges, it is a trail which really has a mountain connotation on a very varied ground, colored ochres at the top through the wildest valleys of the massif.

It is a real immersion in the wildest places of the Ventoux massif

La Bouillonnante, a trail that connects climbs, descents, relaunches. Trail running is playing. And that's what we try to offer every year. New bumps, new trails, and lots of fun.

The departure takes place in the heart of the Château de Bouillon and the circuit takes you to some beautiful viewpoints of the region. The final part of the circuits (from 15k to 50k) is undoubtedly… refreshing since it will be necessary to cross the Semois twice to reach the castle. If you like the effort, but not without comfort, this trail is for you ...

Each and every one of them can choose between three routes of 12, 23 or 42 km in a loop, starting from the city center of Barcelonnette.

A trail which, depending on the altitude, will smell lavender and genepi, the scent of undergrowth and mountain pastures, the pure and crisp air of the peaks and large mountain spaces with Provençal colors and skies. All the ingredients are there to allow your physical and technical potential to be fully expressed and to bring you to the highest peaks of the Ubaye Valley, under the intrigued eye of marmots, chamois and ibex.
