It is a more technical route than other rando races on the schedule, and those who love putting their suspension through its paces will find what they're looking for.

Technical sections, fun sections, climbs with a sting in their tail and beautiful countryside are the ingredients of this ride that demands full commitment.
Start and finish in Roquebrune-sur-Argens.

The first race stage open to riders from the Junior Category upwards, the Roc Light has proven to be an effective solution for those who have a ‘competitive edge’ but aren’t huge specialists in the discipline.

The 23km are for the most part fairly fast, but nevertheless comprise a steep ascent of 250m and several windy sections which will delight the most energetic of riders.

  • 2 waves: 12 noon / 12.15pm

  • Highest point on the course: 231m

A great, fairly athletic rando acts as an introduction to the hills and vegetation of the Mediterranean. Of course, it’s uphill, but stunning panoramic views await you if you can drag yourself to the top!

In the foreground, you’ll see the Gulf of Fréjus and the famous red rocks of the Esterel Massif are not far off. In the distance you’ll see the Mercantour.

So, if you like MTB as much as picture postcard scenery, the Rando Altitude is the race for you ;-)

  • Discipline: triathlon
  • Distances: 1.5 km / 23 km / 11 km
  • Elevation gains and losses: 400m

  • Time limit: bike running race transition 4.20 pm

Whether you're a novice or experienced triathlete, you'll surely be looking to surpass yourself in this race, now in its 7th year.

To begin, you’ll need to dash into the water from the beach at the Base Nature to complete two 750-metre laps of swimming.

You then enter the transition area on the beach before attacking 24 km of mountain biking with 350m of elevation gains and losses overall. The bike section is a fairly fast route through the Petites Maures, reaching its highest point at km 10. It will be followed by a 5-km section on a hilly landscape which will be favourable to the best technical specialists, before going back to the Base Nature with five very fast kilometres.

The running section will be two relatively flat 5-km loops, but which resemble a cross-country course with many changes of pace.

A race for fans of outdoor sports, for you to discover now.

This is the event’s flagship race!

Although it moved from Ramatuelle to Fréjus nearly twenty years ago, the DNA of the 1984 version remains intact.

Fifty-odd kilometres across abrasive, sometimes sandy, sometimes rocky, terrain, which alternates between endless climbs and slopes so steep that riders’ noses almost hit their wheels with the effort needed to climb. This is a noble event. It has lent a certain celebrity to places such as Le Bougnon, the Fournel descent, La Gaillard, the Sentier des Douaniers and many more.

A race of attrition, a real, personal challenge that every mountain biker should take up one day in their cycling career.
