Trail running in Vallespir

28th April – 29th April

The last weekend of April will see the toughest trail runners complete a 36km circuit around the Tour de Massane and the Tour de Madeloc, towering high above the Chateau de Valmy in Argelès.

Climbing and descending over 2000 vertical metres, competitors will have to navigate technical mountain trails and even traverse a tunnel just 1.5m high! Not for the faint hearted.

But the event is not only for the top athletes amongst us; with various circuits ranging from 5km to 20km, including a 10km walk, there’s surely a distance to suit all ages and abilities. There’s even a kids race on Saturday afternoon!
