Description

Are you interested in trail running and looking to take your hobby to the next level?

If the answer is yes, then join me or another certified leader for a two day conference and trail running session in the beautiful rolling hills and river valley of Bouillon!

Situated on the banks of the Semois River, the Grand Trail de Bouillon is the perfect spot to practice running on a variety of different terrains. We will also spend time during the trip discussing various aspects of trail and running as well as recommending useful tips for preparing for an Ultra.

Once we have gotten settled into the hotel or hostel at which we will be staying on Saturday, we will immediately head out and begin our first 52 or 25 kilometer run, depending on your endurance levels.

As we run through wooded and winding trails, we will discuss the best nutrition and training methods for those of you who are preparing to run an Ultra.

On Sunday, we will put the new techniques as well as your equipment to the test with a randomly selected course. What course we will do also depends on your endurance and how we feel that morning.

We will run in a relatively small group – 10 people maximum – in order to spend as much time discussing strategies for specific participants as well as cultivating a more discussion based session as opposed to a lecture.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an informational and exciting weekend of trail running and learning in the beautiful Bouillon region of Belgium!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my muscle strengthening workshop for trail runners in the Belgium’s Sonian Forest!

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.

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.
