Trail running nurtures the soul. It’s not just about running, it’s also about leaving routine behind and experiencing nature firsthand. This combination of running and hiking has been growing exponentially for the past few years, with traditional runners seeking to get out of the paved beaten routes. Book a certified guide and venture into the wilderness for a real workout in close contact with nature, in some of the most stunning trail running spots on Earth. It’ll make you fitter, stronger and happier!
Trail running is a sport you can do just about anywhere. It is the activity of running off of paved surfaces, often taking advantage of the geographical features and landmarks of nature. Mountainous regions are sought after for their challenging trails and stunning visuals, combining the endurance of the run with elevation-influenced obstacles. Runs can last anywhere from a few kilometers and a few hours to an immersive week on various routes to fully indulge in a region.
Trail running can be combined with other activities, like hiking and nature discovery, to take advantage of a certain area. Running is great for anyone who is open to a workout, with varying levels of difficulty for every run. Elevation gains, long distances, and remote areas tend to have more challenges, but meandering jogs along the ocean are just as rewarding. When it comes to interacting with the terrain, from gravel paths to root-filled nature roads, trail running is a wonderful way to explore your favorite places while working out at the same time.
Awesome and very well organised
Fabulous running in a fantastic country for trail running. My guide Marc was superb and could not have been more knowledgeable or accommodating. I would recommend anyone try this run of a lifetime with Marc.
We were taken good care of by James. He met us for drinks when we arrived and told us about the area in Chamonix. We found his way of thinking of trailrunning and his experience so interesting. Unfortunatly he had to take care of his father who was sick, the day we had planned our trip.
He arranged that Tony Sbalbi would take us. We had some problems understanding eachother, but he took good care of us. And we had an amazing day doing the trip we had planned with James. We walked up to Plan de I’aiguille, and run to mer de glace, and then down to Chamonix by the forrest. We really loved it!
Nature, working hard and adrenalin!
We can’t wait to go back! Thank you!
Ha sido una experiencia inolvidable. El lugar es impresionante y el grupo de personas con el que compartí la semana eran majísimas. Los alojamientos y la comida han estado muy bien. La guía Carol excepcional. Muy simpática, atenta y con extensos conocimientos sobre la actividad a realizar y la zona. Totalmente recomendable. En cuanto pueda repetiré.
Great trip. Good balanced program, valuable tips from experienced guide and breathtaking environment.
We had a excellent time in the Jura mountains together with Lucas. Beautiful nature and an perfect guide! I can really recommend this!
Home again after three amazing days in the Jura mountains I just want to come back for more adventures!
We were a group of five people so we got the pleasure of planning our own trip. Lucas had an idea to start with and then we made some modifications in order to fit our level of running.
Lucas was the perfect guide and host and very eager to share with us his passion for the Jura Terrain and its flora and fauna.
He is a very strong runner and great fun to hang out with. We had a lot to talk about and he was definitely one in the group!
I can only give my very best recommendations!!!
I had a wonderful adventure with Lucas in the Jura mountains. I’m a trail running beginner and he made me dreaming for more! He had planed well and had back up plans if needed…He new his area well and took us to great places. We visited high spots with great views and different country sides that was beautiful. Evert day was different. I’m so happy to become acquainted with Lucas 🙂
Very pleasant person and really scenic trail run
Amazing three days spent running in the Atlas Mountains with Marc, a highly professional and super friendly guide. We passed through Berber villages where we stopped off for tea and took in 35-30kms most days in amazing conditions. Can’t wait for my next trip!
Pour moi le trail c’est avant tout la découverte de nouveaux territoires, les rencontres et les échanges avec d’autres passionnés, le respect de la nature. Mes 3 stages avec Caroline m’ont permis de retrouver ces fondamentaux dans un cadre toujours bon enfant, mais pas moins professionnel. Caroline est une passionnée de montagne et de tout ce qui y touche (sport, culture, gastronomie) et elle sait comme personne transmettre sa passion et ses bons conseils, toujours avec le sourire. Je garde un excellent souvenir des rencontres avec les autres stagiaires et mais aussi avec les autres encadrants, Guillaume, Seb, Cédric, Lydie et tant d’autres rencontrés au cours de ces stages.
J’ai fait deux stages avec Caro, c’est devenu une amie, et chacun de ces stages m’a laissé des souvenirs inoubliables. Le premier stage en 2014 en Haute Savoie à l’occasion du Trail du Gypaète. Le Deuxième stage en 2015, dans les Calanques de Marseille. Ces stages auront été parfaits à tous les niveaux: Paysages grandioses (on sent qu’ils ont été choisis avec soin), des échanges techniques avec des “pros” (un grand moment quand Caro inspecte les sacs à dos…), pleins de conseils nutrition – mode de vie etc… La découverte des autres stagiaires mais aussi des autres encadrants (très bon contact avec Guillaume Lenormand par ex.). Des conditions matérielles top (hébergement, repas, organisation etc…). Seule critique: le temps passe trop vite, c’est toujours trop court! Donc au final quand c’est fini, on n’a qu’une envie… c’est de repartir pour un autre stage! Et vu le nombre de personnes que l’on croise sur les stages qui en sont à leur n-ième participation, je peux affirmer que ce sentiment est partagé!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
