The Aosta Valley and Fort Bard are organising a new endurance trail running event to be raced clockwise along the Alte Vie 1 and 2 high-mountain trails, at an altitude between 300 and 3,300 metres. It consists of a 350 km circuit with 25,000 m. elevation gain which starts and ends in Cogne, in the heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park. The race will take place between 3rd and 9th September 2016 and, despite it being a new addition, it has already been accepted as one of the qualifying races for the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc.
