Event description

Description

Running Up For Air (aka RUFA) is an endurance mountain challenge that was created to raise money in support of the fight for improved air quality for those who live in the Chamonix Valley.
In winter months ascending into the Valley often means starting in smoggy, cold, polluted air and climbing up to surprisingly warmer clean air above. It is a bitter-sweet feeling to sit on a summit and look down at a glowing cloud of smog below and realize you must eventually go back down.

On May 4th we'll be holding the first European edition of RUFA with the choice of running 3, 6 or 12 hours on the trails surrounding and behind les Planards, Chamonix. If running up and down hills is your cup-o-tea, then join us for what is guaranteed to be a fun and exhausting event.

Check in for the event will take place at Patagonia Chamonix on Friday May 3rd. If you do not pick up your bib number on Friday 3rd you can also check in on the morning of the event on May 4th.

When you arrive to pick up your race number, please provide a form of photo ID, your event ticket and the completed medical certificate. This can be downloaded and completed by clicking here.
