From our base there are some great runs to discover, whether it be on the
flat or taking in some steep hills. Running
in the Pyrenees can offer fantastic training and spectacular scenery.
There is also
great undulating 10k route around the
local lake where you can also swim (subject to local conditions). Slightly more
challenging in the winter months!
There are miles of off-road routes through the local woods offering
welcome shade from the sun during the summer months.
In our information area there are many recommended routes to choose from
according to whether you want a 6k road run or a 20k multi terrain run!
