DISTANCE AND RT's
The Marathon de la Route is without doubt a regularity rally where endurance is important.
Of the 2200 km of the course about 30% are classification stages with about 35 RT's in total.
REGIONS AND STAGE TOWNS
The route will cross some of France's most beautiful regions: Burgundy, Cantal, the Aubrac High Plateau, the volcanoes of Auvergne and the Ardèche. Their wild landscapes, winding roads and rugged terrain have been and still are appreciated for motor sport.
Trust Joseph Lambert to offer you a route just as fabulous as the previous editions!
The stage towns are: Clermont-Ferrand, Millau, Le Puy-en-Velay and arrival in Beaune.
