Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

On the long course of GFNY Lourdes Tourmalet, you leave Lourdes and its Sanctuary of Notre Dame de Lourdes quickly behind to tackle 60km with a series of 800m-high and 600m-high cols along the foothills of the Pyrenees. Cap de Germs, Col de la Saoucede, Col de Palomieres, Couret d'Asque and La Bouchette are Ardennes-like climbs that serve as a precursor of what is to follow.

At 75km, you begin the climb up Col d'Aspin: 12km long, 800m of elevation gain, a maximum steepness of 10% and topping out at 1493m. Aspin is a Tour de France legend and has been used no less than 71 times.

After the descent off Col d'Aspin, you start climbing again. Now you are racing on one of the holy cycling grounds: the 2115m-high Col du Tourmalet. The climb from Sainte-Marie-de-Campan on the western side is 17.1km long and gains 1267m with an average gradient of 7.4% and a maximum of 11%.

From the top of Col du Tourmalet, you have a 34km descent followed by 13km of slight downhill and flat cycling. Find a group to work with for this final stretch back to Lourdes to navigate the headwinds. Back in Lourdes, the post-race celebrations await you.

LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 10% of finishers in each age group earn a spot in the Qualifier Corral at every GFNY World event.
