@sharmanian 's Templiers Preview on @iRunFar. The classic pure traily trail race! Scenic, fast, hilly. And no laps!!
Millau styles itself as the capital of French outdoor sports, something that Chamonix may argue with. The races’ scenery includes secret ravines, old castles, ghost villages, and towns with accordion players. It also includes terrific landscapes such as the Gorges de la Dourbie, the Causse du Larzac, canyons, and caves like the Owl Cave. However, it’s not one of the more technical European trail races. As Andy Symonds says, “The course is really what I’d define as pure and classic trail running. It’s fast, largely very runnable, and undulating without being mountainous. For me, it’s the sort of course that would make a good world-trail championship.”
