PTL® (La Petite Trotte à Léon)
A team ultra endurance event
The PTL® is an "enlarged Tour du Mont Blanc", allowing the route to cross, far from beaten tracks, the massifs surrounding the highest summit of the Alps. This Tour du Mont Blanc takes place on paths sometimes difficult, even non-existent; it includes the crossing of numerous cols (passes) and summits of between 2500 and 3000 metres altitude.
This event is without classification, it is to be realised in complete autonomy by inseparable teams of 2 or 3 participants.
To try the adventure: it is necessary to have experience in endurance sports, a good knowledge of the mountain environment and the topography, a sense of the solidarity and a team spirit.
The route: it is different from one year to the next; it is not way-marked but it is mapped (GPS tracks and maps supplied).
