What we offer
Daily alpine running adventures curated and guided to suit the group's ability and goals. Explore what is quite literally one of the most breathtaking mountain destinations in the world. Our running adventure will typically range in 15 - 25 km per day; however, one of the European alps perks is the prevalence of trains, gondolas, and telepheriques (Aerial tramway). This means if you want an easier day or want to skip out and take in the sights, we can accommodate your alpine running trip desires. All trip details are taking care of for our guests, accommodation, lift passes, guides, transportation and a few great meals with the group.
- IFMGA Mountain Guide + Avid runner Ross Berg as a guide.
- Intimate local knowledge
- Fully organized mountain trip
Is this for you
This is a challenging trip of 6 days of alpine running. It would be best if you were prepared to run 15 - 20km per day with up to 1500m of elevation gain. Ready to brave the potentially challenging weather, move over exposed terrain and most importantly, connect with a new group of runners and enjoy a glass of red or two.
- Ability to run consistent 15-20km day in mountain terrain
- Previous trail running experience
- Comfort with alpine weather and understanding of proper layering
Tackle France, Switzerland, and Italy in a week of alpine running. Based out of our private chalet near the center of Chamonix, we will run from there when possible and take a bump from the gondolas when possible. We will also sneak out of the valley for a field trip toward Vallercine for a day in Switzerland and to Courmayeur, Italy, for a running and gelato mix.
