Video: Running the Tor Des Geants in the Italian Alps

By now, it has become abundantly clear to me that no matter how hard I try, there just isn’t any way for me to keep track of all the amazing endurance events that take place all over the world. Case in point, the TOR Des Geants — an amazing trail race that takes place in the Italian Alps that I’d never heard of before.

Thankfully, ultrarunner Jeff Pelletier put together this fantastic short documentary that not only introduces viewers to this race, but takes us out on the trail with him to compete in it. As you’ll see, it is 330 km (200 miles) of stunningly beautiful scenery. It also happens to be a 330-km sufferfest as well. In other words, just the kind of thing that we enjoy.
