A legendary adventure

A legendary adventure

The route of this course which links the 2 Alsatian departments is at the height of the mythical 100 miles distance. The departure will be given in Colmar, prefecture of the Haut-Rhin, where you will be able to admire the district of the Small Venice before leaving in direction of the Vosges mountains and its castles of which the first one that you will visit will be that of Hohlandsbourg. On the first part of the route, you will cross the tourist towns of Turckheim and Kaysersberg before resuming the visit of the castles by continuing by those of the city of the minstrels and in particular that of Saint Ulrich, offering an impregnable view on the city. Once you reach the Taennchel massif, the highest point of the course, you will join the 100K route and switch to the Bas-Rhin department just before entering the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle. Halfway through the race, the landscape will give way to vineyards and Alsatian villages from Châtenois to Barr where you will take the 50K course before the ascent to the Mont Sainte-Odile. A last difficulty awaits you at the top of the Heidenkopf before plunging towards Obernai, making you knight by crossing the finish line on the ramparts.
