4 races in Auvergne – Puy de Dôme

CHAÎNE DES PUYS-FAILLE DE LIMAGNE EXPERIENCE – 110KM

A trail for the toughest runners through the very heart of the Auvergne volcanoes, it can also be completed in relay teams of two or three. Designed to take in the entire Chaîne des Puys zone, which recently became a UNESCO world heritage site, this race allows you to explore this exceptional region in a completely new way, thanks to the balance of scenery and ascents up some of the area’s characteristic hills. Part of the trail includes an ascent to the summit of the legendary Puy de Dôme (1,465m) to view the spectacular sunrise. For this third instalment of VVX, the trail will have a few nice surprises and will be extended to 110km to give you the chance to explore the northern part of the Chaîne des Puys. The final 30km of the Volvic Catchment Area Experience trail will bring this spectacular volcanic experience to a close.

ITRA-certified route and UTMB-qualifying race: 4 points solo

This course offers superb views of the Chaîne des Puys that stretches more than  30km towards the south, between the Faille de Limagne, enclosed valleys and the Plateau des Dômes.

New in 2019 : a race for the kids!

 

VVX KIDS RACE – 3 CIRCUITS OF  500, 700 AND 1 100 M

During the VVX, the kids will have their own trail to enjoy! The race will take place on the Goulet site. It will start from the same place as the adult race: under the VVX arch. Waves of 20 children will be sent off at a time: the next wave will leave as the last gets back to the starting line. Each child will be allowed to complete the course as many times as they want during their allocated 30 minutes.
