The VCV is a run from Villeret, in the Bernese Jura (760 metres), to Chasseral (1607 metres) and back to Villeret. The route takes you through magnificent landscapes. The partially steep paths are bordered with beautiful forests, pastures and typical Jura wood-pastures. The sublime view from the ridge of the Chasseral Mountain is particularly worth mentioning.

VCV, three letters for a unique and original race. Organized for the first time at the beginning of September 2000 by a small group of running enthusiasts from Villeret and the surrounding area, the VCV is today in the purest tradition of mountain races. Small Sierre - Zinal for some ... a challenge similar to that of the Val de Travers for others, the Villeret - Chasseral - Villeret foot race is finally unique in its kind and not only in the region. Over the course of its 21 editions, the VCV has acquired its letters of nobility in a calendar of foot races that is as extensive as it is varied. Combining popular fervor and conviviality, it is aimed at both elite athletes and simple walkers.
