Trail des 7 Couleurs - Relay

120 km trail race

Trail des 7 Couleurs - Relay

A little teamwork in an individual world

Those who choose to complete the trail solo must have two sets of skills: that of the expert climber, able to contend with the substantial changes in elevation at the start of the race, and that of a runner, capable of racing on the trail’s flatter portions, which resemble a road race. 

 

The relay is an opportunity to combine these two skillsets to play to your strengths or improve your chances of winning. Only during a relay race does the individual sport of athletics become a team effort. The watchwords of any trail run are friendship, community and mutual help, and joining forces to complete two 50km ultras is as lofty a challenge as going the 100 kilometers alone. 

 

The novelty of being able to run the trail as a relay also contributed to the success of the Ultra-Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB) in 2017.Whether you are competing solo or as part of a team, the gorgeous scenery and multiple inclines of the 100-kilometers Trail des 7 Couleurs will bring your sense to life with every emotion imaginable, as will the Trail de la Perruche (47 km), the Trail du Nautile (25 km) and Trail du Souffleur  (10 km).

 

Running the Trail des 7 Couleurs on your own:
