Tor des Geants 2015

A race starting and ending in Courmayeur, Italy. It follows the Alta Via 2 along the southern rim of the Aosta Valley and the Alta Via 1 along the northern rim. Total distance is 330km (200 miles) and elevation gain is over 24,000m (78,000ft.) with an equal drop. It is a single stage race with a time limit of 150 hours.

The official website of the race is at http://www.tordesgeants.it/

This year the race started on Sunday, September 13, and was stopped early on Thursday morning, September 17, because of continuing bad weather. On the days with bad weather I focused my photography on what made continuing worthwhile: the volunteers and the food at the aid stations.

I previously did this race in 2010 and 2013. Photos from those races are at http://www.pbase.com/chrrrris/tor_des_geants_2010 and at http://www.pbase.com/chrrrris/tor_des_geants_2013
