Published on March 21, 2024 by Capucine Pedamond

Do you like sport, surpassing yourself, celebrating and eating well, all in a natural and preserved setting? Look no further, the fun getaway is the event for you! On the program of the hiking, Moutain Biking, urban trail, gravel but also routes cycling. There is something for all tastes and all levels!


The event will be held for its first edition in Brive, in the Parc de la Guierle. The departures and arrivals of all disciplines except hiking will therefore take place from this village where the atmosphere promises to live up to the reputation of Les Gaillards. The hike will leave from Sainte Féréole or Donzenac depending on the route and will also arrive in the Guierle park in Brive.

Beyond the sporting aspect, the aim of the event is to introduce you to the nuggets of the built and natural heritage of which our territory abounds. Unprecedented passage through visiting sites, crossing of preserved natural areas, discovery of small charming villages... I promise you will have as much fun for your eyes as for your calves!

Our tips for preparing for the event:

  • Make vocalizations regularly to be able to give voice and encourage other participants when they arrive

  • Prepare yourself physically : do cardio, strengthen your legs but also your arms (the aperitif promises to be tough too)

  • Growing a mustache (yes yes... it seems that it greatly improves performance)

  • Come with all your energy and good humor!

We would also like to thank all the partner clubs who made this event possible and who put together great courses for you!
