The Children's Odyssey

A day in the life of a real musher on the slopes of La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc. The Children's Odyssey is in partnership with Praz de Lys Sommand and Jacques Brel High School of Taninges, trained and supervised by the French School of Mushing.

Sunday, January 13th, 2019, the children of Les Montagnes du Giffre become mushers competitors.

Exclusively and for the 8th time in France, The Children’s Odyssey is a race entirely devoted to children.
It is the fruit of a partnership between the Tourist office of the station Praz de Lys Sommand and the college Jacques Brel de Taninges.

For a day, the children will evolve under the same conditions as the mushers taking part at the official stage of Praz de Lys Sommand : Same infrastructures, same start and finish sites, speaker and many spectators.

Twenty-one young mushers of the college Jacques Brel de Taninges and of the college André Corbet de Samoëns, selected beforehand and trained by professional mushers will race the “Children’s Odyssey” with teams of three dogs in the beginning (5 km) of the same track as the one used one hour earlier by the champions of La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc.

Beyond the media impact of such an event, The Children's Odyssey is part of a learning process carried out long before the race.
In the fall, various actions of mountain discovery (sport jobs and activities), writing, artistic creations will be set up with the children of Jacques Brel Taninges high school and primary schools in the station.

See you Sunday, January 13th, 2019 in Praz de Lys Sommand to support our young mushers!
