Description

Run along the premier balcony trail of the region, the Grand Balcon Sud.

The run follows sections of the famous Chamonix race routes; UTMB®, Chamonix Marathon and Trail des Aiguilles Rouges.

After a steep climb, you’ll be treated to sensational views of the Mont Blanc range.

The Planpraz cable car speeds you back down to the valley floor at the end of the day - or descend at Flégère for a shorter run.

This is a superb run on a clear day! Check out Run the Alps trip options here: https://runthealps.com
