Tor des Géants is a 330km trail race in Valle d’Aosta (IT) totalizing 24000 m vertical rise. Best time to finish the race is 80h 20mn in 2015.

Gait Up supports Grégoire Millet’s and Denis Haw’s new studies on measuring athletes during this competition.

4852 hours of running were collected, totalizing 14Gb data. 81 Physilog sensors were delivered in order to continuously monitor 40 runners (see red pouch at the ankle of the runner in the image above).

Here is the face of our Hardware Engineer, happy to release as many sensors at once!

The image below gives an idea of the logistics to waterproof the sensors and charge them at the lifebases.
