Numbers of British trail/fell runners making the most of the serene and natural settings in the French Alps are on the increase and with good reason. The French are avid supporters of this exhilarating sport and sky runners as they are often called are very much welcomed on the well mapped trails in the Savoie.
Enjoy the freedom of running from peak to peak. The Beaufortain area has something for all trail runners whether you are new to the sport, a mountain marathoner or an experienced ultra trailer – the trails here won’t fail to deliver on adventure.
Local, English speaking, knowledgeable guides can be booked if requested in advance.
The summer and autumn months are stunning in the Alps and are the best time to enjoy trail and fell running in the Tarentaise Valley.
