MOT 38K – Meja Occitan Trail

MOT 38K – Meja Occitan Trail

Valle Maira is one of the most beautiful valleys in the western Alps, now internationally famous not only for its beauty, but also for its hospitality, sustainable tourist offer and the possibilities for outdoor activities that embrace all seasons of the year.

The Meja Occitan Trail is the race that kicked off the MOT events with the 2021 edition. It is a 38 km race with 2100 m D+ and 2500 m D-.


It starts from Chiappera in the shadow of the famous Rocca Castello and, after passing two hills, crosses the entire Gardetta plateau dominated by the splendid Rocca la Meja, one of the symbolic mountains of the Maira Valley. The stage ends in Marmora, known for its hospitality. The maximum time allowed to finish the race is 10 hours.

The village is set up in Marmora and becomes the hub of all Maira Occitan Trail events with stands, exhibitions and entertainment.

At around 3pm we will start with the prize draw for 50 lucky runners, the final awards ceremony for the winners, and musical entertainment. The entire program is available on the page for non-runners.

In the afternoon there is a shuttle service to take the athletes back to the starting area in Chiappera. The service costs 5 euros and the shuttles will alternate approximately every 45 minutes starting from 3.30 pm. You can book and pay for the shuttle directly when registering on the wedosport website, or directly at the trail village at the race office.
