If there is indeed a place to go during the Summer EDF Pierra Menta of Arêches-Beaufort, it's on the Place du Capitaine Bulle where participants start and arrive each day and where the unveiling of the leaders and the runners’ briefings take place the day before each stage, broadcast on a giant screen.
This is also the village of the partners that have supported us during the first edition.
This is where everything begins and ends, where the atmosphere is the liveliest, after the mountain tops climbed by the trail runners.
Arêches-Beaufort, iconic resort and village of the Beaufortain Valley, embodies trail running in its most challenging dimension: an exceptional area that already hosts the Winter Pierra Menta, the most famous and difficult ski mountaineering race in the world.
Just like this famous winter race, which will celebrate its 31st anniversary in 2016, the summer trail running version has naturally managed to set the standards in the world of trail running in a protected environment and a unique area that offers runners an endless playground, both beautiful and challenging.
Arêches-Beaufort, an area ideal for sport, but not only. It is also a village, a population and a tradition rooted in the region for generations. Its heritage, with cheeses such as Beaufort or Grataron d’Arêches, proves the richness of its culture, but it’s what you really need to recharge your batteries after a day spent running in the mountains!
Alongside the Club Multisport, the town of Beaufort and the Tourist Office are proud to support this unique event that leaves no one indifferent.“It is in difficulty and transcendence that the heart of men shows all its beauty and grandeur.”
