The TPM organization offers again this trail: a vertical kilometer! This trial is quite simple, reaching the summit of the Sénépi (1769m high) the fastest possible with an ascent equal to 1000m of elevation gain, and only 3.5 km long!

Created in 2016 as to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the mountain pasture of Sénépi, this VK allows us to highlight “our Everest“, the highest point of our courses: Sénépi. Every summer, this massif hosts the biggest mountain pasture in France and more than 800 cows come to spend the summer there under the eye of Sylvain the shepherd and his family. The participants of TPM are also welcomed there every year with joy and happiness, on several races!

The departure of the vertical kilometer race will take place in Mayres Savel and the arrival will be at the top of Sénépi.

The departure will look like a time trial: the 1st participant will leave at 4:00 pm and the other runners will leave every 30 seconds.

At the arrival on top of Sénépi, participants will enjoy a light refreshment, and then we will offer you a refreshment of local products on your return to Mayres-Savel!

Note that your participation in this event can be coupled with another distance proposed by the TPM: the Petit Train which takes place the following morning!

(see our paragraph on the “VK + Petit Train” Challenge below)

 
 
 
LA 500 D+ (A HALF VERTICAL KILOMETER): A NEW RACE MAINTAINED!

Following its state of mind and its reputation of always proposing events of different formats for all levels and to reach as many people as possible, the TPM organisation offers you the possibility to measure yourself against a Vertical Type event in a more accessible format than the Verticale du Sénépi: the 500 D+!

Come and discover this very specific format on a half-VK, a 500m D+ climb.

The start will be in a time trial from the village of Mayres-Savel, the finish will be at the Serre de l’Aigle, after an effort of approximately 1.2 km.

 
 
 
The VK + PETIT TRAIN Challenge to enjoy even more our beautiful landscapes!
 

We suggest you take part in a challenge based on the combination of these two events which can be run on Saturday 3th and Sunday 4th July:

  • La Verticale du Sénépi (3,5km / 1000m D+)
  • Le Petit Train (28km / 1500m D+)

A 6€ reduction is offered on your cumulative registration for these 2 events, and a ranking will be proposed on the total time of these 2 events!
