Jura, a mountain range in France, holds countless wonders. Our trails, sometimes hidden, are each one more amazing than the other. Indeed, they allow us to discover exceptional landscapes. From ridges to valleys, I offer you my knowledge of the field and my trail running experience.

The following are some of my favourite spots in the region. We can go wherever you choose.

Saint Claude area:
– The beautiful “petites bosses”: Bayard, Chabot, Roche Blanche, Crêt Pourri.
– The cascades: Queue de Cheval, Gorges du Flumen…
– The “secret” passages: the chains and many others…

High valleys area: Crêt de Chalam, Luette, Bouchoux…

Jura high chain area: Marie du Jura, 32 Contours, Crêt de la Neige and other belvederes.

Rousses-Bois d’Amont area: Dôle, Mt Fier, Mt Salaa, Risoux…

My goal is to make you spend an amazing time running in the Jura region while learning trail running techniques. Of course I can adapt the trip to beginners or advanced runners.

We can leave together for one or several days, for example for a long weekend…

About the guide

I discovered the joy of the mountains at a very young age, and I knew that my place was there, in the Jura, the Alps, or elsewhere, but in a place where raised terrain allows to go high...
My experience in the Mountain Troops and the Gendarmerie, together with a regular practice of different mountain sports, allowed me to gain knowledge and know-how that enriched my mountain leader training.
In 2012 I got certified as State Mountain Leader (AEM), which allowed me to start fully living my passion for the mountain, and sharing it with you.
I propose to share very varied activities: walking ,hiking, trekking, snowshoeing. It allows me to enjoy precious moments in nature with you.
To complement my leader training, I discovered trail running 8 years ago, a more sportif and intense way to discover the mountain, always respecting the environment.
I can also offer you my expertise in Morocco, where I have been going often during these last years. My knowledge of the field and of the local correspondants allows me to propose magnificent journeys to you!
From the Jura to the Alps, not forgetting Pyrenees, Corsica and Morocco, my approach to the mountain has always been guided by the search of pleasure and the comprehension of the 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!!!

Evert day was different. I'm  so happy to become acquainted with Lucas :)

We had a very good time during our snowshoe trip with Lucas! The Jura region is very beautiful and peaceful (perfect to explore with snowshoes) and Lucas was a great guide that helped us in everything we needed, shared all his knowledge and passion about the place, showing us a lot of spots (some hidden and less travelled) to enjoy great views and also teaching us a lot of interesting facts about nature, the history and the culture of the places we visited. On top of that he made us feel as if we were walking with a friend and not just a guide which made the experience even better. So, on short, we strongly recommend to everyone this activity, the region and Lucas as guide for a great few days in the nature away from all. Best regards, Luis Manso
