Description

The Les Vosges mountains are a far reaching, but low ceiling mountain range in France, near the German border. They are the perfect place for trail running because they are full of long, twisting trails, open spaces, and beautiful natural landscape. And on this exciting weekend, that is exactly what you will have the chance to experience.

This exciting weekend could be viewed a number of ways. It could be seen as a means to explore and admire a beautiful area in eastern France. It could be seen as a means to gain an incredible amount of physical exercise in a short period of time. Or it could be seen as a means to accomplish both of those things. However, whichever way you view it, this weekend trip will absolutely take your breath away.

Each day, we will be running for approximately 4 to 5 hours, covering approximately 25 kilometres. We will be making our way through ridges and climbing summits like the Col du Falimont (1,290m), and we will be running through technical trails and forests. We will also be passing several beautiful sights as well, including the Hohneck (1,363m). This peak is the third highest in the entire Les Vosges mountains. You will even get to enjoy an unforgettable sunset once we reach the mountain refuge at the end of the first day!

Participants in this trip do not necessarily have to be trail running experts. However they should be in good physical condition. And they should also be able to run at least 20 kilometres per day.

So if you are looking for an exciting weekend of trail running in France, just send me a request, and let me guide you through the Les Vosges mountains.

I can also lead you on a similar weekend of trail running in Mullerthal, Luxembourg.

About the guide

Passionate about trail running, the outdoors and everything that nature provides to us, I got certified as a mountain leader by the Club Alpin Belge. I also work as a school teacher and devote my free time to my artistic pursuits.

Maps are another of my big passions. I collect them and spend hours looking at them and searching for the best itineraries in the Alps, the Andes, the Carpathians...and then I take you to explore them, running or walking.

My mission is to share with you the happiness that a high altitude lake can provide, the comfort that one can find in a rustic mountain hut and the excitement of walking along a mountain ridge. Looking forward to meeting you!

First of all our guide was not Thibault as communicated initially but Nathalie. Already when in contact with Thibault communication wasn't smooth, he only replied via the platform days after the message with very short info. I had asked several times more details about the activity but I never got them...the day before I got a message from Nathalie just giving practical tips about clothes, meteo etc I was told that we would have had orienteering challenges in teams but on the day the guide was sending instructions to get to a point via smartphone (only to me) which was quite useless because I was the only one trying to find a way. On the other hand if she wanted to do something with smartphones she would have warned us in advance so that all colleagues would have had an active one and for exemple she could have sent the messages in a chat with everybody in. Anyway the best would have been to print out for us simple maps/instructions like the ones she had. All this should have been discussed and agreed with me/us in advance...otherwise it would have been far more interesting a simple walk with a guide that knows the history and characteristics of a place and that could tell us something (this was an offered option) interesting.

The trip was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and landscapes together with majestic hills. We lived a camping lifestyle for two days which was very enjoyable and even though we were relieved to finish after a tough 2 day trek, we instantly missed the feeling of being in the outdoors and away from the city. Our guide Thibault was excellent. He was the perfect guide for the trip, so helpful and knew what he was doing - couldn’t ask for better.

Des parcours magnifiques, un we bien rempli mais juste ce qu'il faut, un niveau adapté, une guide au top et un chouette logement ! En résumé, un we inoubliable.

Vraiment a faire!! Je ferai sûrement d'autres cours chez vous pour me perfectionner maintenant!

Il y a juste deux petites semaines, j'ai participé à un weekend rando Trek Atout... Un superbe weekend ! Ok, la météo nous a fait un super cadeau : de la belle neige sur nos Fagnes! Mais tout de même, sans le "président" rien n'aurait été pareil ! Nous avons été accueillis comme des amis, Thibault nous a emmené sur des petits chemins et sentiers magnifiques, nous avons appris à jouer au whist, nous avons partagé l'apéro, Thibault nous a préparé une (demi)soupe sur un sol enneigé, nous avons échangé et beaucoup rigolé ! Je pourrais encore allonger la liste pour les non convaincus! ... Merci encore Trek Atout! (Depuis, je m'entraîne encore plus à la course à pied en espérant un jour faire un trail avec TrekAtout).

Bloc trail en Belgique juste magnifique. Quasiment 70 km et 2500d+. Une équipe au top dont Thibault nôtre guide agile de la carte qui a su nous denicher des parcours aux petits oignons. Nath aux fourneaux qui nous a concocté de très bons plats végétariens (et pourtant je ne suis pas végétarien). Bref une organisation sans faille qui nous a permis de découvrir des coins superbes. Un week-end à refaire les yeux fermés.
