Marmotte moves to Saturday due to elections

Confirmed now: La Marmotte will be moved from June 30 to June 29 due to the French elections.

La Marmotte 2023

L'Étape rescheduled prior to La Marmotte

It was already announced last week that L'Étape du Tour would also be rescheduled to a day earlier, now taking place on July 6. This change was made because the second round of elections will occur on the initial date (July 7). The rescheduling caused widespread criticism and many logistical problems for the 15,000 participants.

La Marmotte seems to be facing a similar situation. Several participants have already been informed by their accommodations (see below).

Cancellation notice for La Marmotte

The first round of French elections will take place on June 30, the same day as La Marmotte. On that day, all sporting and cultural events have been canceled to increase voter turnout.

The organization has not yet officially announced the rescheduling.

UPDATE: The change in dates has now been confirmed by the munacipality of Bourg d'Oisans as well as the organizers.
