In Ardèche, North of Marseille and South of Lyon, in a gorgeous landscape of gentle and steeper slopes shaded by forests of chestnut trees will take place in June 2015 the "Chaussée des Geants" trail race.
This area, known by sports fanatics for the climbing, canoeing or mountain-biking opportunities it offers will now be the backdrop to a challenging race aimed to delight eyes and feet alike.
Runners will have a choice of 3 itineraries over distances of 50km (31 miles) (the 50Km race earns you 3 points to 2018 UTMB!) or 20km (12.4 miles) (the 20Km race earns you 1 point to 2018 UTMB!) and the last challenge this year 10km (6.2 miles) . Varying terrain and panoramas will make for very interesting running indeed!
The races are open to experienced runners.
Registration can be completed either online or by mail.
In Thueyts where the race will begin and end, accommodation can be found for all budgets : hotels, camping sites, bed and breakfasts, holiday rentals...
