The spirit of solidarity
La Plagne is first and foremost a resort concerned with human issues. With sport as the emblem of wellbeing, the resort has found something of a soulmate in the Odyssea event. To contribute to the fight against cancer, the resort will be organising a running race this winter. Visitors and locals can be proud to race in the pink t-shirt!
Running for a good cause
Tuesday 18 february 2020, join us in Plagne Centre at 1:30pm, to a new snow race "Odysséa - La Plagne" .
You have two options: an easier 5 km version or a longer, timed course over 8 km. Don’t worry though, no-one’s expecting a top-level performance! This is a convivial charity event that offers an opportunity to run in small groups in the snow. It’s thrilling and highly invigorating, so off you go!

Organised for the past 18 years and in 14 different locations, the Odyssea races and walks aim to collect funds to support the fight against breast cancer. Since it was created in 2002 the association has already contributed over 8.5 million euros thanks to the participation of 840 000 people. Odyssea’s goal is to inform people and get them involved by taking part in the 5 or 10 km running or walking races. When it decided to start organising races on snow, a partnership with La Plagne seemed obvious to Odyssea as one of Gustave Roussy’s special partners.
Institut Gustave Roussy
The recipient of the funds raised by events like the Odyssea race and a partner of our resort, the Gustave Roussy Institute, is Europe’s leading centre in the fight against cancer.
