The trail

Trail running is a sport of long-distance running in a natural environment, generally on hiking trails or paths. Trail is the abbreviation, specific to French speakers, of the English trail running.


Since the explosion of the practice of this discipline, many trailers have chosen the Aure Valley to come and train and prepare for the major sporting events on the calendar!

Besides, it is not for nothing that the valley is the spot of the Grand Raid des Pyrénées at the end of August, one of the most prestigious Trail and Ultra Trail competitions.

It is also here in Saint-Lary and Vignec that the Patou Trail and its different competition formats are organized every year end of June: Skymarathon, vertical kilometer, etc…

Located in the heart of vast protected areas,

St-Lary is the starting point for many itineraries. A stopover on the GR10, the village is also one of the gateways to the Pyrenees National Park and the Néouvielle Nature Reserve.

A dream playground for all practicing trailers with possibilities of itineraries in loops and overnight in refuges.
