The Pyrenees is a perfect place to improve fitness
Pyrenean trail running & Ariege races
Trail runningin the Pyrenees offers spectacular mountain terrain with fine views and interesting wildlife. See snow capped peaks, mountain Orris(primitive stone shelters) and tranquil lakes. We have plenty of runs for you to enjoy and can offer maps and accompaniment. Several start from the house including the Sinsat run, gently undulating and the much tougher Col de Ussat, Clot de Carboniere, Lujat 12km (+850m).
Montcalm mountain marathon is the classic of the summer and we have a brave group of 6 here at the moment ready to take part.
