The course

Coming from the United States, the discipline of gravel riding is in full expansion in Europe with practitioners seeking more of an escape and communion with nature while sticking to physically accessible routes.

Year after year, the format becomes a little more firmly rooted in the event’s programme. The route for this year’s event will be the same as for previous editions, while continuing to adapt to participants’ comments. The route will continue to be physically challenging, with irregular surfaces: footpaths, marshes, vineyard paths, white roads, undergrowth and fields. To make it easier for runners to find their way around and stay safe, the course will be moving further away from urban areas and reducing the number of changes of direction, particularly in its novel final phase with a return through the Allinges woods.
