Information not available to date, please contact the organizer directly for further details


On July 9th at 10:00 am the 150km and 180km competitors will start from the Place du Palais of the Principality of Monaco!

Then we will head for the Roya Valley (severely hit by storm Alex in October 2020), crossing the balconies of the Riviera on the heights of the Mentonnais country, passing through magnificent villages and peaks with an incredible view of the sea.
The first stage will end at the base camp in Breil sur Roya where a bivouac will be set up to welcome the riders.

The rest of the programme is just as enticing, with a magical and unique passage through the heart of the Mercantour National Park, following in the footsteps of the Grande Traversée du Mercantour, in the direction of the Authion and the mythical Col de Turini, made famous by the Monte Carlo Rally. Another nice nod to the links between the Alpes-Maritimes Department and the Principality of Monaco.
The end of this extraordinary adventure will be around Saint-Martin-Vésubie, where the second base camp will await the competitors, with passages at an altitude of nearly 3000m.

The other races, starting and finishing in Saint Martin Vésubie, will not be outdone with a very mountainous profile and passages on the ridge line at an altitude of more than 2500m.
All this with breathtaking views of the coastline. Assets specific to the Vésubie Valley.
A 10km will allow the less experienced to taste the joys of the Trail, on a more accessible course.

Participating in the Ultra Trail Côte d'Azur Mercantour is the promise of an unforgettable adventure, covering the most beautiful landscapes of our Côte d'Azur region!
