Tor des Geants

The Tor des Geants is an endurance race that covers region of Valle d'Aosta in Italy. It starts at the foot of the highest Four-Thousanders in the Alps and through the Gran Paradiso Natural Park and the Mont Avic Regional Park. The distance is 330km with an elevation gain of 24000M. Runners get 150 hours to complete the race but where they stop, rest, refuel is entirely up to them!

This makes the race unique.

Jamie has run this race 3 times altogether; 2016, 2017 and 2018.

In 2017 unfortunately it was a DNF but she made up for that in 2018 by taking second female!

There are some cracking photos of Jamie on the TORX Race website and on the Tor des Geants Facebook page
