LONG ROUTE: With close to 4000 meters of climbing over 117 km, the GFNY Alpes Vaujany long route is a test of your legs, and your willpower.
The race starts with a controlled 5km descent from the mountain town of Vaujany. After the quick descent, the first challenge of the day begins: the 25-km climb up Col de la Croix de Fer, first through the forest, then past lac de Grand’Maison, then to its breath-taking top at 2,067 meters. After descending on the other side, and flat 10k in the Maurienne valley, you’ll climb Col du Glandon. After the descent off Glandon, you will face the final challenge of the day: the climb back to Vaujany and your finish line celebration.
LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the 117 km long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 20% of finishers in each age groups qualify for the Racer Corral at every GFNY World event.
