If you do not receive emails within 24 hours of registration, please check your spam and contact us if necessary.

Bib number and starting lines

The allocation of your bib number will be made in May when registrations are closed. You can see it on your personal space.
Your number will be automatically established according to your performance index and will determine your starting line.
In the event of an error when entering your name or date of birth, you will not be recognized. So you will be in the last starting line.

How to get information on the races

To have precise information, we invite you to read the dedicated page for each race

Information about of the switchover on the night route

For races whose arrival can be done at night (Ultra-Race, MaXi-Race, R-Race, Marathon expérience) a switchover will be made at nightfall to the platform of the old cable car (the km and the exact time is indicated on the table at the top of the page).
In order to guarantee the safety of the runners, you will be switched to a less technical route. You will still be considered as a finisher but a time adjustment of a few minutes will be made on your arrival time to ensure sporting fairness.

Information about the relay organisation

  • The R-Race can be done in 2 (R-Race 2) or 4 (R-Race 4).
  • Registration for the R-race is done by a team manager.
    To register for the R-Race, it is not mandatory to provide full contact information for all the runners. The team manager can complete his team's information or make a change of runners up to 15 days before the race date.
  • If the team manager can no longer participate in the race, we invite one of the runner to send us an email indicating the name of the new team manager and the organization will make the change (you can't do it by your self)
  • If a runner is out of time limits or can't finish his relay, the next runners will have the opportunity to run and will start just befaure the end of the time limits. However the team will not be considered as a finisher team.
  • If you have registered for R-Race 4 but only 3 of you start, a runner can do 2 relays but you will be ranked on R-Race 4 and it will not be possible to get a refund.
  • The changeover will take place in the "indicated zone" area. This zone will be located outside, in the middle of the assistance zone for other races between the green panel (zone entry) and the red panel (zone exit).
  • The runner who has just finished his relay can access to the refreshment point before changing his clothes, the other runners can't.
  • Accompanying persons or other runners will not be allowed to "enter" in the "covered" area where take place the refreshment point.
