The UTMB® from Chamonix to Chamonix travels through 3 countries, the CCC® takes off from Italy and flies over Switzerland, TDS® opens towards the Beaufortain region and the OOC will now honour the Swiss Valais region.
The race will start from Orsières located southwest of the canton in the Val d’Entremont. This valley offers unique landscapes: ultimate peaks on the eastern flanks of the Mont Blanc drawing the franco-swiss frontier, hanging glaciers on polished rocks, fiery torrents… The layout of the OCC goes through that nature, in a charming atmosphere before reaching Champex and the last part just as magical at the UTMB® or the CCC®.
As part of the “Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc” (UTMB), Antoine Lallier ran the OCC (Orsières-Champex-Chamonix), the shortest race (53 km, +3.300m). Not enough prepared for a mountain trail, he struggled to cross the finish line. With a finishing time of 7:51:10, average speed is very slow (6.6km/h) but ranking not to bad (104th over 1317).
