La 31ème édition des courses du Montcalm aura finalement lieu en 2021.

C'est avec une grande tristesse que nous avons pris la décision d'annuler toutes les courses du montcalm pour 2020. Ce n'est pas la décision de la passion mais bien la décision de la raison pour garantir le maximum de sécurité aux participants et aux bénévoles et éviter la création d’un foyer infectieux.

The Montcalm Marathon is much more than a sporting race. It was created with a basis in several dimensions: Economic, Touristic, Sports and nature, the Festive, the Human and the Social.


The Montcalm Marathon is a fabulous tool for the promotion of tourism, beyond Ariège, the region, the Pyrénées, and France – notably for our Catalan friends who come to climb the Pique d´Estats, ´The Roof of Catalonia´


The Montcalm Marathon has a strong identity in the mountain tourism of the Tarascon and Vicdessos valley.


These are some of the many reasons why the adventure continues on the Roof of Ariège !
