La 6000D

The 6000D, a legendary race and the first of its kind, is still considered a challenge by most trail runners. Climbing from the apple orchards up to the glacier is a real feat!
Individual challenge, accessible to all
3400m of elevation gain over a 69km course that takes participants from the village of Aime in the valley to the top of Bellecôte glacier at 3047m via La Plagne’s different altitude villages, then descending through the forest to Montchavin les Coches and finishing along the Isère river.

The atmosphere 6000D
The trail is well marked with 95% of it on regular walking paths. There will be a large, enthusiastic crowd throughout the event to cheer for you during the 33th edition, on Saturday, July 29th 2023.
Following works on the cable car line from Plagne Bellecôte to the Glacier, it will be completely closed throughout the summer of 2023.
In order to be as close as possible to the Trail spirit, there are only 5 aid stations (food and drinks) and 3 water points (drinks only) over the 69 km. A camel bag or a water bottle holder is highly recommended. Self-sufficient running is recommended.
