EVENT

The first edition of OUREA takes place from July 11 to 18 2020 in Avoriaz 1800 (Haute-Savoie). This new event was created in order to bring together amateurs and the best in the world around an atypical event in the trail. It will be unique in its format, the beauty of the landscapes and the quality of the courses.

This is a muli-stage race with several formats of 3-4 and 8 days. Competitors will also be able to choose the most suitable distance for their level if they want to run a single day with access to 9 trails.

The concept

OUREA is an innovative event which gathers amateur athletes and the best ELITE athletes worldwide for 3 stage races and 9 day races with diversified courses.

Departures and arrivals will be daily from Avoriaz 1800, allowing simplified logistics for athletes and an ideal setting for their companions. The OUREA concept also lies in its ability to offer a range of leisure and entertainment activities important for families and relatives of competitors and for spectators. The organization will be eco-responsible and educational throughout the year and during the week of the race.
