The Tor des Géants is underway. A very special test, perhaps the hardest, held since 2010, which has 330km and 24,000m of positive gradient, with 25 mountain passes. Starting from Courmayeur, in the valley of Aosta, the test passes by the four alpine colossi: Mont Blanc, Grand Paradiso, Monte Rosa and Matterhorn . 

At the moment, after 31 hours and 177 kilometers, Javi Domínguez leads the test, closely followed by the Italian Franco Colle. Javi Domínguez is an experienced runner, current Spanish Champion of Ultras in the Picos Crossing , with a 3rd place in the UTMB of 2013, but has never competed in such a huge distance. 

Tor des Géants 

The race has a maximum duration of 7 days, in which the organization does not impose stages, so each runner must be given breaks and stops to overcome these almost 8 mountain marathons that run around the 4 giants of the Alps: Mont Blanc , Grand Paradiso, Monte Rosa and Matterhorn. 

The Tor des Géants is the first and only race that joins the long distance and the individuality of the rider, since the organization does not impose forced stages, but it will overcome the one who uses less time, being administered the breaks and the stops in the provisions. 

The departure and arrival of the same takes place in Courmayer, and on the way there are distributed reception bases where care and assistance is provided by doctors and nurses to those who intend to pursue the career, guaranteeing emergency cures; in addition, inside the base there is prepared an area for rest.
