If you'd like to put your athletic skills to the test, then there are a number of competitions that take place every summer in the Alps. One such event is the Reebok Spartan Race. This obstacle course is held in locations around the globe, including Morzine.
The Spartan Race was founded in 2001 by a group of former athletes who wanted to create a competition that is accessible to a wide number of people, and which was designed to push competitors to their absolute limits. Since 2011, the organisation has partnered with Homes for Our Troops, a charity that works to provide specialised housing for military personnel who have been seriously injured in combat. Many of those who participate in the race are amputees or wounded soldiers who want to test themselves while also making the public aware of the charity.
Every time the Spartan Race is run, it features a variety of different obstacles. While many of these are kept secret to provide an element of surprise, some are almost always included. For example:
●Fire jump - This is often at the very beginning or end of the race for a bit of added drama.
●Spear throw - Participants must hit a target with a javelin at 10 or 20 metres.
●Barbed wire crawl - This obstacle is always included, and competitors must crawl under barbed wire for a distance of 20-100 metres.
●Wall climb - The walls are usually made of wood and grouped in series of two, three or four.
●Object carry - This is often one of the most difficult obstacles, and competitors usually have to move the object a significant distance and uphill. The item can weigh between 14 and 30 pounds and is typically something like a tyre or sandbag.
This year, Morzine's Spartan Race will take place on July 1st and 2nd. Three races will be held over the two days, covering distances of six, 13 and 21 km. A junior race will also be held for children who want to join in the fun too.
Morzine might be the name of a town in the French Alps, but the Morzine ski area actually comprises several villages and towns, each with their own atmosphere and personality.
Whether you're planning a snowy ski holiday in Morzine, or are looking for some summer fun in this alpine location, it's a good idea to know the different areas so you can find a destination that suits your preferences and holiday style. Here's a quick run-down of the various places in Morzine to help you decide:
●Avoriaz - This is a purpose-built ski resort, with wooden-clad apartments and chalets that give it a more traditional appearance. The town is completely pedestrianised, and only service vehicles are allowed, so the only way to get around is either on foot or via horse-drawn sleigh.
●Chatel - This traditional alpine village is located at the bottom of some of the most popular and beautiful ski slopes in the Portes Du Soleil. It's home to a variety of hotels, bars and restaurants and offers plenty of activities throughout the year.
●Les Gets - This satellite town of Morzine offers plenty of charm, as well as its own lift system and a mini train. It's a pretty settlement and is often snowier than its larger neighbour.
●Les Lindarets - This picturesque spot is also known as "the goat village", thanks to the alpine farming, and hundreds of goats that wander the streets in the summer. It's not accessible by car during the winter, but it's a popular stop-off point for skiers and snowboarders, and there's a wide choice of restaurants and bars to choose from.
●Montriond - This small village is located on the eastern side of the valley from Morzine, across the Dereches river. It is close to the lifts, shops and bars, and offers easy access to the Ardent Bubble lift.
●Morzine - Originally a French mining town, Morzine is a picturesque town with charm and high-quality facilities.
●Saint Jean d'Aulps - Located between Morzine and Lac Leman, this is a quiet town that's not connected to the rest of the Portes du Soleil by any lifts.
