The trail is a true queen discipline of nature sports. And it is certainly not for nothing that many practitioners come to train inthe Monts de Guéret. Between courses with strong positive elevation gain and breathtaking landscapes, the Monts de Guéret offer a unique playground in New Aquitaine for the practice of trail running. Ticked off in the diary of great runners, The Trail du Loup Blanc, taking place in December each year, gives you the opportunity to run one of the most beautiful races in the region.

L’Espace Trail des Monts de Guéret !

We give you an appointment on no less than 10 specific circuits “Trail” marked (from 5.9 km and 141 m of D+ to 67 km and 2402 m of D+) where each runner, beginner or expert, locates in the Monts de Guéret a playground to match his desires and abilities. Alone or with friends, you find inspiration for active stays to prepare your season or in view of the famous“Trail du Loup Blanc” in December.

For lovers of night outings, 3 circuits are marked with retro-reflective arrows. With a good headlamp, the training can continue even in winter!”

3 gates allow you to join the different circuits: the refuge of Maupuy, the parking lot of Pierre la Grosle and the parking lot of the Parc Animalier des Monts de Guéret “Les Loups de Chabrières”. A link from the Courtille recreation area also leads you to the start of the Maupuy.

For your specific training, you have the split course around the Courtille pond, a Fartlek course and a dry climb of 850 m at 10% at the top of the Maupuy.
