A HUMAN HISTORY
Jean Giacosa is the founder of the AÉRIA association and has been the organiser of the Verdon Canyon Challenge for over 25 years. Jean, passionate about nature, is literally in love with the biggest canyon in Europe. Out of respect for this unique place, he has been able to make the event evolve while keeping its fundamental values: humanity, technicality and respect for the environment.
Jean GIONO used to say: "Here, it's more than far away, it's elsewhere! »
The AÉRIA association has been able to transmit this passion for the Verdon gorges by creating an unmissable event where, every year, more and more nature lovers and lovers of wide open spaces come to flirt with their limits and live an exceptional sporting adventure. Men and women of all ages, backgrounds and sporting levels have thus participated in one of the oldest French trail events: the VVCC had 820 runners in 2016 and a thousand in 2017.
The association is surrounded by many professionals (safety, mountain guides, logistics, sportsmen and women, technicians), volunteers and private and institutional partners who share the same values. These actors are eager to make the geological heritage of the Verdon Gorges better known and to boost the eco-touristic development of this unique region!
