An impressive route, crossing the Lauzière balconies, climbing the mythical Cheval Noir, as well as the magnificent Crève-Tête ridges.

For once, your companions will be part of the party and will be able to benefit from free or preferential rate activities in Valmorel (swimming pool, accrobranche, introduction to the Laser rifle…).
This year, we have innovated and are offering activities to prepare for the weekend’s races. But you too, accompanying persons, can participate!
Local sportsmen and women have prepared “relaxing” sports outings with a nutritional approach to get to know the terrain better and to better understand the different Mad’Trail courses, but also to better understand nutrition for a sportsman.
Diego is a Fartleck trainer and preparator, Florian, Valmorel’s trail ambassador, is a mountain guide and won the 42km in 2018, Candice is a trainer and dietician.
The 3 of them form a strong team to prepare you for the Mad’trail and to take all the right information for your training and future races!
