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.
