The first edition of OUREA takes place from July 11 to 18 2020 in Avoriaz 1800 (Haute-Savoie).

It will be unique in its format, the beauty of the landscapes and the quality of the courses.

This is a muli-stage race with several formats of 3-4 and 8 days. Competitors will also be able to choose the most suitable distance for their level if they want to run a single day with access to 9 trails.
