A simple smartphone application

A simple smartphone application

The principle of the Lure Challenge is to offer an athletic, fun and tourist challenge.

In the framework of a project for innovative tourism, the communauté de communes Pays de Forcalquier-Montagne de Lure is delighted to provide you with an application for your smartphone (telephone with GPS, internet connexion under Apple or Android).


This application invites you to do the ascent of this mythical haute-Provence mountain and compare your performance with friends and athletes of the same level.

During the ascent, the application will liven up the course with voice messages and text messages and inform you of the remarkable points along the climb, making this personal challenge a unique experience. On your way down, you can make the most of the view and discover the history associated with it.

How do I download it?

  • On your mobile, go to the application store (Android Market or Appstore) or flash the QR code at the top on the right
  • Enter “ChallengeLure” in the search engine
  • Download the application free of charge
  • Click on the application to discover the Challenge

How does it work?

The application has several functionalities. You can access them on the site or at home.


To rise to the challenge, you must enter your profile. This makes it possible at the finish to compare your travel time with your reference time and award you a Gold, silver or Bronze medal along with a diploma.


You can tell your friends about this application (by email or Facebook) and at the finish, publish your course on the official challenge de Lure website.


The application automatically detects your start and your arrival at the top. During the climb, at regular intervals, you have access to intermediate times, average speed in order to know your ascension rhythm. You also receive messages of encouragement and tourist information.
