Come and take on this vertical ascent! The challenge starts in Saint-Etienne-De-Tinée and takes competitors up 1,000m of vertical over a 4.5km climb. The goal is to get to the top as quickly as possible. At the summit, runners can recover in the Boreal-Alpine atmosphere with a breath-taking view over the Vallée de la Tinée.

This race will put you to the test and push you to your limit with every stride. The first three men and first three women that reach the Bercha Cross and become a KV finisher will win a race number for the competition of their choice at the Nice Côte d'Azur by UTMB® event.

The KV de la Bercha, co-organised by the Auron Trail Club, is the perfect way to round off a weekend dedicated to trail running. Find out more on their facebook page.
