Create your own story!
In September 2021, join us on the slopes of the Vosges mountains to write a new page of your history. The challenge is important: 150 km in 5 days ! You will follow in the footsteps of Julius Caesar’s armies conquering Gaul more than 2000 years ago to those of the Allied troops liberating the region in 1945. Empires, kingdoms and later nations have fought for this land, coveting its strategic importance and its wealth.

– 150 km through the Vosges, almost exclusively on long-distance paths (GR)
– 5 days of unassisted stages (only water is provided at the race checkpoints)
– The paths are marked and do not require navigation
– Semi-autonomous race: each participant will have to carry everything he/she needs for the duration of the challenge (dinners and breakfasts will be served in the refuges)
– The nights will be spent in refuges of the Vosges Club (or equivalent), which means that each participant must be equipped with at least a personal sleeping bag.

The package includes
Transportation from Basel airport or nearby train stations for competitors (and their families if needed).
6 nights in refuges or equivalent (which in some cases will include dormitories depending on the capacity of the refuges hosting us). (*)
All breakfasts upon arrival at the base HQ in Wattwiller (camp HUTTOPIA).
All dinners as soon as the race has started from the evening of September 5th.
A celebration dinner at a special location on the evening of the finish on 09 September.
Photos / videos of the challenge will be given free of charge to all participants at the end of the challenge.
All participants will be rewarded at the end of the race!
