Discovering the Chibottes

Discovering the Chibottes

A brand new course in 2023 starting from the town of Solignac-sur-Loire located south of Puy-en-Velay. After a passage in Cussac-sur-Loire by the charming paths along the Loire, we will attack a beautiful 800 m bump with the ascent of the Boureyde.

Note the unusual passages in two former railway tunnels that have become greenways (Malpas tunnel and Riou tunnel). Something to cool down in case of strong heat like in 2022. At the exit of the second tunnel, there will be a new refreshment point before reaching Eycenac for an invigorating end with the Guard of Eycenac, the famous park of Chibottes, before living an exceptional arrival after a last climb towards the famous cathedral Notre-Dame du Puy-en-Velay, classified in the world heritage of the UNESCO

The trail of Chibottes allows to obtain 1 Running Stone, essential sesame to participate in the final UTMB World Series in Chamonix in 2024. (Only 4 events in France).
