Euro KIMM 2009 - Bellevaux (Haute-Savoie)


Bellevaux (Haute-Savoie)

The Euro KIMM is a well-organised, low-key, two day mountain marathon score event, sponsored by the Tourist Association of the town/village hosting the event.  All competitors run the same score course, so you’re basically competing against other pairs in your age category.


The highest-scoring controls are often at altitudes of over 2000m, so running through ankle-deep snow is always a possibility.  It therefore goes without saying that although the registration & prize-giving take place in glorious sunshine, the hours in between are spent running in high mountainous terrain, often without seeing anyone else for a couple of hours at a time, so the normal all-weather gear is essential for the safe enjoyment of this event.  There is very little of the crocodile queues of competitors, often seen on the line courses at the OMM & the SLMM, all heading for the same control.  The overnight camp is usually at quite a high altitude, with stunning views, no midges, a camp fire and complimentary Genepy!!
