At a glance
The Trail des Trois Rocs (16) is one of 3 events held on this day - our 'lite' version - a 16 km predominantly off road trail, open to all, licensees or not. Although shorter, it's a tough race with plenty of climbs, technical challenges and knee bending descents. A challenging but more accessible option for those wishing to try off-road running.
The route is carefully signposted. It follows some public paths and way-marked ways but also crosses private land not open to the public at any other time, allowing for unique access and views of the surrounding valley rivers and gorge.
Our top secret new trail has a few surprises this year. Get training.
There is a limit on the overall number of places (500 subject to changes in relation to Covid requirements). Registrations for the race will open late November and close when either all places have been taken on a first come first served basis or on the 1st May 2022.
