Eco Trail de Paris / France

Trail in the capital ! Since 2008, the Eco Trail de Paris offers to runners a trail running race near Paris.

With less than 10% of road, the Eco Trail de Paris is a real trail running race. Runners will discover a lot of wood, forest and parks around Paris (the Domaine national de Saint Cloud, the forest of Versailles, Meudon, Saint Germain, the Champ de Mars…). And of course, runners will always remember the incredible finish of the race : the Eiffel Tower, the France most famous monument…

Since the first edition, the organizers have always wanted to protect the environment. For example, tickets for public transport are offered to runners to come to the start line. Each year, 7500 euros are donated to the National Office of forests to rehabilitate a place.

During the event, runners will have the choice between many races. The Vertical of the Eiffel Tower, an incredible ascent of the famous monument, will be the first race to begin. Runners will be able to run the 80 Km, the 50 Km or also the 30 Km. The trail des Hauts-de-Seine, a race of 18 km will be a shorter race for runners who don’t want to registrar on the 30 Km and more.

Ultrabericus trail / Italie

If Vicenza is a renowned city for artistic works, also known under the name of « city of Palladio », because the famous architect did a lot of achievements in the city, for sure, Vicenza will be also known for the Ultrabericus trail !

Between the start and finish at the same place in Vicenza, « Piazza dei Seignori », runners will have to run 66 Km and 2500 D+ (solo or by team).

More than a trail event, runners will be totally immersed in the local environment of the « Berici ».
