A 4-day stay in Thiézac, to prepare and improve in trail on an exceptional playground. In fact, the Cantal is Europe’s largest volcano! This massif has many hidden treasures and you may be surprised by the relief of this beautiful region…
I’ll help you discover with passion and good humor one of my preferred playgrounds.
Some of he highlights of this stay are:
– To stay in the heart of volcanoes in a remote spot off the beaten track;
– Professional advice on technique, preparation, food, equipment;
– A star-shaped journey with one accommodation during the whole stay;
– Logistics and a high-level trail coaching.
Date 2017: May 5th to 8th.
In the ‘extra’ section below, you’ll find information about the required trail running level you need to have. You will also see the equipment that you need to bring with you.
During these 4 days we will run on average 20-35km a day and go up from 1000 to 2000 meters. We will mainly be on single tracks and varied terrain. We will partially be on aerial paths.
