La Plagne presents new offers & events this summer, let’s look it up :
ANNIVERSARY – The 6000D is celebrating its 30th edition
A pioneer of mountain trail races that dates back to the start of the 90s, the 6000D is now one of the most established races, a “must-do” for mountain runners and a proud achievement for the resort of La Plagne. 8 races for all levels are organised over 3 days: from a family treasure hunt to the star race over a 65 km course with 3500 metres of elevation gain, going from the apple orchards to the glacier.

The 30 year exhibition
30 years of emotion, 30 years of passion, 30 years of exceeding personal boundaries, 30 years of happiness: all that is what the 30th anniversary of the 6000D represents! For the competitors, the spectators and the volunteers, taking part in the 6000D is always a key moment and an incredible human experience. The “6000D spirit” is a careful blend of conviviality and personal achievement.
For this anniversary edition, the team will be looking back and creating an exhibition that highlights all the “little” stories that make up the full history of the 6000D. The idea being to connect each geographical point of the course to a year of emotion. It will be modelled in St. Martin’s basilica in Aime, the central point of the event.
People of all ages and sporting ability can visit the 6000D exhibition and tell themselves “I have been part of it too!”
