8th Forcethon Verbier

Come and run or walk in a relaxed atmosphere and support research into childhood cancer.
In 2012, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, FORCE has established two annual sporting events – in Verbier and Lausanne Chalet-à-Gobet – allowing a wider audience to support research on childhood cancer by performing a sports course. Open to elite and amateur athletes, families and children, feet racers but also to walkers – walking and Nordic walking, these events are also moments of sharing and conviviality.

As well as the classic 8km course with an altitude difference of 1000 metres, this year we’ve created a “fun race” around the summit of Savoleyres, covering a distance of 3km and an altitude difference of 200 metres.

A "Pasta Party" will welcome all brave sportsmen at the Savoleyres restaurant. The return to the station will be provided by Téléverbier for those who wish. Accompanying persons who do not wish to walk up or down can also use the lifts.

Sports race: Verbier Sports Centre - Savoleyres, via La Marlénaz and the foot of the Pierre Avoi mountain, 8km and an altitude difference of 1000 metres

Fun race: Savoleyres - Croix-de-Cœur - Top station of the Les Etalons ski lift - Savoleyres, 3km and an altitude difference of 200 metres

Categories: ladies, men, under-16 girls and under-16 boys
