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 !
