The 2019 Montcalm Challenge is coming!!!


In 2013, we had the chance to collaborate for the first time with the Montcalm Marathon.

It was our first event in France, completely new to us, we were a little scared but finally everything went perfectly well. The shirts were successful and we became two additional volunteers.



Now we are beginning to prepare a new edition. For us, going back to Auzat means meeting each year people we met 7 years ago. We participate in the organization, we give a hand if needed and we try to climb to the Pica d'Estats, roof of Catalonia, with all the Montcalm Challenge team to eat, sleep, drink ... and to be in the end for two days additional volunteers.


That's why we try to make the best T-shirt, with a modern design, and contribute every year to make the Montcalm Challenge grow and increase its quality.

It must also be said that thanks to the Montcalm Challenge, we are a little better known in France.


 So, thanks for all these years and we expect many more to come.



Warm regards!!!










 catalyst of talents in the heart of the Ariège Pyrenees !


I grew up at the foot of the Montcalm, in L’Artigue, and I have always been fascinated by the beauty of the landscapes and the courage and strength of the women and men of our valley! So, I decided to combine the strengths of the Montcalm with my job as a professional business coach: I organize individual and collective coaching sessions, business seminars, in this soothing and stimulating environment, to better manage your stress, your objectives, boost your mind and strengthen team cohesion.


Trailers, rugby players, basketball players and team sports clubs are now using our services to consolidate their strengths and push their limits, while increasing their physical potential.

The PEPIT.ES team is at your disposal to organize preparatory stays, and we will be present as volunteers on Montcalm and PICaPICA races to accompany you in your sporting feat!

An experience in Ariège !

We have created in our village in Ariège a restaurant-shop of local products with a dual purpose: promote taste and heritage, to show how our good mountain products are the fruit of this exceptional territory. Welcome to the embassy of our gourmet products from Ariège! 

We are Gascony cow farmers and we welcome you in our family home at the foot of the “Plateau de Beille” in Ariège, in the heart of the Pyrenees. 

Being independent in our production choices, living with dignity from our work, it was our bet as young farmers: we naturally moved to the direct sale of our products (mountain meat, fat duck, Gascon black pig) and to the agricultural tourism: educational walks, restaurant-inn...




Our development choices meet more and more the expectations of today's "consumers" who want also to be “actors”: eating at the Lacube House, bringing back home our good meat or one of our burgers means becoming aware of the riches of our region, supporting a sustainable mode of agricultural production and promoting the local economy. 

And it's amazing how this sharing can generate a close link, taste and pleasure ! 

By discovering these places, tasting these simple and true flavors, you will come to meet our history. 

So contemporary, full of life, future and meaning.

The Montcalm Challenge races as seen by the trailrunner Philippe LACUBE

The Montcalm (3077m) for all the people living in Ariège is an iconic peak: it is the roof of the ARIEGE with the “Pique d'Estats”, which is on the border with Spain. The Montcalm Marathon, which has passed through these two summits for 29 editions, is mythic.

I have always roamed the mountain but I really began the practice of trail in 2016. I participated in the Sarrasi Vertical Kilometer in 2017 and last year I registered for the first time for the Montcalm Marathon. I did not think I would be able to make it because I know what this event represents but I prepared very well which allowed me to have the resources to do it well. It was an exceptional experience and I ranked 59th in 6h and 14min.

In 2019, I will be again at the start of the Montcalm Marathon or of the PICaPICA if I can prepare myself well enough to finish this race because I already know three quarters of the course and therefore its extreme difficulty.

The Lacube House will give us the privilege of holding a food and refreshment center where you can enjoy their many specialties. 






Since 1999, Raidlight has innovated and focused its know-how to offer lighter, more innovative and affordable products. Today, the passion and the desire to produce more and more efficient and comfortable products to assist trail enthusiasts during their most beautiful adventures are still the same!


Our values, summarized in the base-line "Share the Trail-Running Experience! ", underline the passion of the teams to be part of your adventures, whether big or small, near or far, and to share them either through the Team, open to all, through the Open-R & D or the Trail Stations network.


For the record, Benoit LAVAL, the creator of Raidlight, participated in the Montcalm race when the start was still in Marc's chapel. He has kept an excellent memory of this race and of the quality of the organization. It is therefore quite natural that he has agreed to support us and offer a nice reward to those who finish the race.
