Trail des Hauts Forts – It’s Back!!

It’s Time! The Trail des Hauts Forts is here! The biggest race in the Morzine Trail Running calendar.

TRAIL DES HAUTS FORTSMorzine | Avoriaz August 8, 2020

The annual demanding yet beautiful trail race across the mountains of Morzine Avoriaz is happening this weekend.

The 4 Races

  • Trail des Hauts Forts: 50KM + 3840M elevation
  • Trail du Fornet: 40KM + 3040M elevation
  • Trail des Mines d’Or: 23KM + 1950M elevation
  • Relais des Contrebandiers: 50KM + 3840M elevation RELAY

This race is always exciting for both participants & spectators. This year it’s even more special. The cancellation of so many events in the sporting calendar has meant the Trail des Hauts Forts 2020 has been eagerly awaited.

Not only does this race give athletes an intense test of duration but also brings the running community together. The Hauts Forts is the highest mountain in the Chablais Alps standing at 2466M. It’s an impressive sight and a challenge for most!

The route crosses the mountains of Pleney, Pointe de Nyon, Vallee de la Manche, Lac Mines d’Or, Col de Cou, Col du Fornet, Morzinette and Prodains. It’s certainly only the strongest who take this on!

I’ll be spectating this year along with offering Pre Event Massage + Post Event Massage. Helping prepare athletes for a race and speeding up recovery time is a big part of being a Sports Massage therapist.

Good Luck to everyone racing in the Trail des Hauts Forts this Saturday! See You There!
