A human history
Jean Giacosa is the founder of the AERIA association and the organizer of the Verdon Canyon Challenge for more than 25 years. Jean, a nature lover, is literally in love with the largest canyon in Europe. Out of respect for this unique place, he was able to make the event evolve while keeping its fundamental values: humanity, technicality and respect for the environment.
Jean GIONO said: "Here, it's more than far away, it's elsewhere! »
The AÉRIA association has been able to transmit this passion for the Gorges du Verdon by creating an unmissable event where, each year, more and more lovers of nature and wide open spaces come to flirt with their limits and experience an exceptional sporting adventure. Men and women of all ages, backgrounds and sporting levels took part in one of the oldest French trail events: the VVCC had 820 riders in 2016 and a thousand in 2017.
The association is surrounded by many professionals (security, high mountain guides, logistics, sportsmen and women, technicians), volunteers and private and institutional partners who share the same values. These actors are keen to make the geological heritage of the Verdon Gorges better known and to boost the eco-tourism development of this unique region!
