3rd Super8


3rd edition of Super8 : 14-16 July 2023 🚵

After two editions reserved for a circle of insiders, the event retains its DNA with original event formats, while expanding with events for the general public and integrating the official FFC calendar as a stage in the regional XC Marathon and VTTAE 2023 championships. Mountain biking has not said its last word, even if the electrically-assisted mountain bike remains the undisputed star of the event. A discipline marvellously supported by Frenchman Jérôme Gilloux, the reigning VTTAE XC World Champion, who has become an ambassador for Super8 and La Plagne.

32nd edition of the 6000d


32nd edition of the 6000D: from 27 to 29 July 2023 🏃

The 6000D is the oldest mountain trail race in the world. It was even the first ! At the time, it was daring to offer a direct return trip to the glacier from the valley. The "Queen's Race" went on to inspire the world of trail running, and the event became a permanent fixture, giving rise to 7 other events ranging in size from XS to XXL, so that every runner can find a format to suit them (distances from 1.5 to 67km). It's possible to grow as a traileur by climbing all the rungs up to the ultimate event. 

New for 2023 : The 6000D 3-man relay
