Have you got what it takes to complete the infamous Hauts Forts route?

It’s one of the most challenging trail running events on the summer calendar, taking place on Saturday 13th August 2016. The famous Hauts Forts race starts in Morzine at 1000m altitude and finishes up the road in Avoriaz at 1800m. It’s not for the feint-hearted, but then our White Valley Lodge guests do like a challenge.

First time Hauts Forts racers might prefer the ‘Short Race’, which covers 25km and a vertical climb of 1850m in total. Or, the seasoned trail runner might prefer the ‘Long Race’, taking in 45km and a total vertical climb of 3300m. Both routes offer up several cols, summits and stunning scenery along the way, including the infamous Hauts Forts peak – the highest in the Portes du Soleil, before finishing in the centre of Avoriaz. You can view the full race route and sign-up on the Morzine-Avoriaz Office de Tourisme website.
