28km

A punishing run on trails along river banks, up valley scree, through forest trails and down technical descents.  Tackling this longer race requires grit, determination and a love of suffering.

At a glance

The Trail des Trois Rocs (28) is one of 3 events held on this day. Our longest trail- a 28 km predominantly off-road trail, open to all, licensees or not.  This is a technically and physically demanding route - not for the faint-hearted - it is tough with plenty of climbs, technical challenges and knee bending descents.  If you don't feel so hard core, don't do this one.

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.

Race profile of our 2019 race, a veritable rollercoaster of running, up and down single track.

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.

HIGHLIGHTS

Racing along single track by the banks of the river Averyon with spots to dive in if you wish.

Scrambling up Le Grand 'Ouf' taking you to the top of the limestone gorge.

Taking on a roller coaster of hills, up and down, this will truly test your metal.

The glorious and expansive views of the 3 valleys and where they join. 

Going back in time with an evening spent in the relatively untouched medieval village of St Antonin Noble Val. 

Not a race for the faint hearted, with various technical challenges including mud, scree, single track and scrambling.

Bottle Up

Runners who wear bottle belts use more than 40 per cent fewer water bottles and enjoy being able to drink when they want. Not only is this a more sustainable choice, as you’ll be reducing the number of bottles used on the course, you’ll also be HAPPIER.
