It’s that time of the year again – summer events are in full swing and the Morzine Avoriaz Office de Tourisme is looking for some community spirit in the form of volunteers to help out with the upcoming trail race, Trail des Hauts Forts. This race is a qualifier for the UTMB so it’s a pretty big deal in the world of ultra-racing! There are two circuits, a 23km route and a 51km route, so lots of help will be required to make sure the athletes are fed, watered and looked after.

Registration and distribution (Palais des Sports de Morzine)
