    The complete Hautes-Alpes tour in 24 hours

    For this fifth edition, our marathon trek retains all its characteristics and DNA! The much-renewed 2023 route will offer the bravest climbs over 50 passes, including some of the most legendary in the Southern Alps... As for the breaks, they're well-spread out, with a short night's rest! As last year, a digital version of the main GPS points will be available 48 hours before the start of the race, so you'll be better prepared!
    Entertainment, scrutineering, administrative checks, loop starts and finishes, catering, prize-giving... Everything will take place at the Pôle Culturel de Savines-le-Lac. The event is not a rally, and takes place on open roads. These are mountain roads with sometimes uneven surfaces. We require the presence of 2 people per eligible vehicle, both with valid driving licenses.
