"Chaussée des Géants" Trail Race
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 2014 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 new, challenging race aimed to delight eyes and feet alike.
Runners will have a choice of 3 itineraries over distances of 20km (12.5 miles) or 53km (33 miles) (the 53Km race earns you 1 pt to 2015 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.
