Description of the Challenge!

CCC® (Courmayeur Champex Chamonix)

A race deep into wilderness using for the most the international path “Grande Randonnée du Tour du Mont-Blanc (GR TMB)”.
Mountain race, with numerous passages in high altitude (>2500m), in difficult weather conditions (night, wind, cold, rain or snow), that needs a very good training, adapted equipment and a real capacity of personal autonomy.

The CCC® has climbed from being the "little sister of the UTMB®" to becoming a unique race that is one of the most prestigious of the world. The start line at the centre of Courmayeur is tinged with an atmosphere that only Italians can provide, a rare emotional moment to the music of Vangelis.

The first kilometres, on an original route, different from the UTMB®, quickly lead to 2500m of altitude to one of the most exceptional panoramas one can imagine, facing the Mont-Blanc and the Grandes Jorasses. The passage of the Grand col Ferret (2537m) marks the entrance of the race in Switzerland, where the competitors will be warmly welcomed by the volunteers of La Fouly, Champex and Trient. Already in France but so close to Switzerland, anyone can enjoy the authenticity of Vallorcine, before discovering after an incredible ascension the Vallons des Chezerys, a true corner of paradise with a magnificent view on the Mont-Blanc chain. It is then time to finally reach the arrival arch in the heart of Chamonix.

Refreshment posts : The principle of the race is semi-self sufficiency. Ten posts will be supplied with drinks and/or food to be taken on site.

Major difficulties[/b]: Ascension of the Tête de la Tronche (2584m) then Grand col Ferret (2537m) during the first third of the race. The second part leads to 3 heavy ascensions : Bovine, Tseppes and La Tête au vents. The long downhill parts that follow every ascension are as difficult for joints and muscles.

This race is open to 1800 competitors maximum.
The start will take place at the centre of Courmayeur, on the Brocherel Place, Friday 31th August 2012 at 10am.
The race will be open for 26 hours maximum, and the hour barriers will be calculated accordingly.
The timing is calculated to avoid any crossing between CCC® and l'UTMB® .
