201702_RDTT_LOGOS-01

The 6666 is an escape, an foray into the Caroux massif in the Haut Languedoc National Park. From 200 to1100m altitude, the cliffs rise, very steep, difficult to reach for a human being, a wild environment where trail runners live out an extraordinary adventure. The tortuous and rocky paths are reminiscent of the Diagonale des Fous on Reunion Island. Ascents of 800m+, infernal descents to gorges and torrents, the only respite from perspiration is to take in the exceptional environment of the Herault mountains where encounters with bighorn sheep are not uncommon. Distance, Challenge, Elevation Change, a fully 3D Trail!

“It’s a trail for nature lovers: waterfalls, streams, wild grasses and rocks, you will find all of the elements.”

“I experienced The Grand Raid 6666 in 2016, it is a trail that allowed me to test my endurance, to see if I was capable. The landscapes are sublime, there is something for everyone: rolling or technical, the spectators are enthusiastic. It is a trail for nature lovers: waterfalls, streams, wild grasses and rocks, you will find all of the elements, I will return in 2017 with great pleasure.”
