The Tor des Géants, now in its 5th edition, is the first race of this kind to cover an entire region, running along its spectacular paths at the foot of the highest Four-Thousanders in the Alps and through the Gran Paradiso Natural Park and the Mont Avic Regional Park. All of these particular features help make this such a unique, inimitable race.

330 km of alpine paths – 24,000 metres uphill altitude difference – 34 municipalities covered – 25 mountain passes of over 2000 metres – 30 alpine lakes – 2 natural parks – from 300 to 3300 metres asl – 7 life bases – 43 refreshment points

The race will start and end in Courmayeur. Runners will set off at 10.00 a.m. on Sunday 7 September, and must complete the route by 4.00 p.m. on Saturday 13 September – a total of 150 hours maximum.

Each runner will have a chip fitted to their wrist. They will be monitored constantly, with checkpoints every 5/10 km. The race headquarters is in Aosta.
