OISANS TRAIL TOUR – Longer and stronger !

STORY BY Emmanuelle 16th July 2019

The Oisans Trail Tour is the unmissable summer Trail in Oisans, co-organised by several village resorts. This time it is back for its 3rd edition with 2 new partners : Alpe d’Huez and Oz en Oisans. From now on they will join the 3 other resorts who have been involved since its creation: Villard-Reculas, Vaujany  Auris en Oisans. This joining of forces mirrors the huge scale of the Grandes Rousses mountain range.

Participants can take part in different variations of the event; there is a course for children as well as the long 87km solo trail.  For the first time ever, solo trail runners will be able to run along the face of the spectacular Écrins on the Emparis plateau!
