THE PLACE TO RUN

Trail is a recent running sport. Occasional runners and experienced runners share the same passion, running in the great outdoors with a sense of space and freedom.

The trailer runs on trails, roads, paths, monotraces that go up, down… Never a dull moment! He respects and discovers a natural environment, magnificent landscapes. Sometimes he may even spot wild boar, vultures or other wild animals in the distance…

The origins of trail running in Millau

The Festival des Templiers has been a must-attend event for trail enthusiasts since 1995. Every year for the past 23 years, they gather for 4 days in autumn, with a bevy of races on the program, from the kids’ race to the Endurance Trail, a 101 km ultra!

TRAIL SCHOOL

Succession is assured

Such is the enthusiasm for the activity in Millau that France’s first Trail School for children aged 6 to 18 was launched in September 2018: introducing youngsters to trail running and respecting the natural environment.

For older runners, numerous clubs offer courses and outings for all levels.

Environmental protection, surpassing one’s limits and mutual aid are characteristics of Trail Running that are a real plus for young people.

Even the last in a race is ahead of those who don’t run.
