Sporting events in morzine les gets – june

The Cyclosportive Morzine-Vallée d’Aulps involves two cycling races, one of 105km and a second of 155km. Although a friendly race, it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. The route crosses Taninges and Samoens and then the Col de Joux Plane perched at 1,712m, before the finish line at Montriond. Are you up for taking part? Register here

SUNDAY 16TH JUNE from 08:00 – 17:00

Another event in June in Morzine-Les Gets is Les Cognées, a unique biennial skidder competition. You’re probably wondering what that even means, right? Imagine forestry vehicles, diggers and other large machines competing against each other to be the best at pulling gigantic logs around challenging off-road courses. A little bit like robot wars, except these machines are much bigger and their main goal isn’t just to destroy one another. Now who wouldn’t want to witness that? Don’t miss this long-weekend festival of live music, artisan demonstrations and forestry exhibitions. Word on the street is that an AC/DC tribute band will be making an appearance too. Entry is free so make sure you get yourself on down there.

SATURDAY 22ND – SUNDAY 23RD JUNE 

New in Morzine-Les Gets for summer 2019, the Biot’rail is hitting the Portes du Soleil for the first time. Discover a brand new running trail race at Col du Corbier. There are three distances to choose from… the P’tit Biot, a 7km race with a 450m vertical climb, or the 15km Grand’ Biot which has a 950m vertical climb. There will also be a 10km un-timed nordic walk, for those of you who prefer to take it a little slower.

SUNDAY 23RD JUNE from 09:00 – 12:00

The Pass’Portes du Soleil is a MTB ride throughout France and Switzerland. Take part and discover the glorious terrain of the area ranging from 1,000m to 2,250m in altitude. Are you an avid mountain biker? Then this one is for you!
