Malmedy, Belgium, Guided Trail Running Weekend | Belgium

Come and see the beauty of the Ardennes in Belgium on this trail running weekend trip in Malmedy with Thibault, a local mountain leader.


2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




* Enjoy 10 to 50 kilometers of trail running near Malmedy, Belgium.

* See the natural Belgian beauty from rivers and valleys to forests and meadows.

* Spend a comfortable night in the Malmedy youth hostel.


The city of Malmedy, in Belgium, is a beautiful place, and outside of the city there is a lot of opportunity to explore the beautiful surroundings. As a result, I am offering a trail running weekend trip in the area.

On this trip you will get to choose from running 10 to 50 kilometers. Hence giving you a huge variety of what you can do over the course of the weekend. So if you want to enjoy a leisurely run through Malmedy’s beautiful natural surroundings, you can do so. But if you want to really push yourself on the area’s most difficult and arduous trails, I can lead you on that path as well. Whichever experience you want to have, this trip can accommodate you. There are also some great highlights on this trip, including the Hautes Fagnes and the Reinhardstein castle.

Regardless of what kind of trail running experience you want to have, in the evening, you will get to enjoy a comfortable night’s rest in the Malmedy youth hostel. Inside the hostel, there is a modern dining room, and a lovely lounge with a fire place. Hence giving you a chance to relax before you go to bed.

Throughout Belgium, there are a number of wonderful trails that will take you into a vibrant green environment. And this trip is no different.  So if you would like to enjoy some great trail running, whether it’s a short casual run, or a long, energetic one, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I can also take you on other weekend trail running trips in Beligum, including this one in Bouillon, this one in Aywaille and this one in Durbuy.

About the guide

Mountain Leader

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!

What people are saying about Thibault



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.



Malgré une météo plus que mitigée, nous avons partagé en famille une belle journée bien préparée par Thibault. Le matin, randonnée sportive dans les bois de Villers-la-Ville, avec acquisition de quelques tiques pour les jambes nues ;-). Pause déjeuner dans un endroit réservé à l'avance par les bons soins de Thibault et adapté aux PMR. Puis, initiation au croquis au crayon gris, aquarelle ou fusain, avec les explications bienveillantes de Thibault. Commencée au sec puis prolongée à l'abri d'un magnifique chêne car la pluie était de retour. A nouveau, notre journée familiale a été très réussie. Merci à Explore-Share pour la qualité de ses propositions et des guides avec qui elle travaille.



A nouveau, ce fut une très chouette journée familiale. Nous avons apprécié Thibault et Nathalie (et leur adorable Sierra) qui nous ont imaginé un beau tour à vélo. Ils sont sympas et attentifs à ce que tout le monde suive. L'ambiance était décontractée et joyeuse. La distance était parfaite pour tous nos petits-enfants qui ont assuré. Le tour était adapté pour Inès, PMR, installée dans un buggy tirée par sa maman. Bon break le midi dans un restaurant spécialement ouvert pour nous. La journée s'est terminée par un jeu de piste bien préparé par Thibault. Merci pour cette organisation top (comme chaque fois).
