Kaysersberg Valley an ideal field for running

Feet on the Ground

The Kaysersberg Valley is chock-full of stony trails, winding, steep and shady paths, ideal for outdoor sports lovers and  for practicing running.  This is a discipline which can be practiced all year long.

Panoramic views of the mountains or vines on the hillside, the views are diversified, for varied levels of difficulty

 The proof of passion sparked off by running and its vitality in the Kaysersberg Valley is marked by  two races which are organized during the summer season :

The Welche Country Trail :  A mountain path race  is organized in mid-July leaving from Orbey with a run   of 50 km ( 31 miles) in distance   for the most experienced.

 « Les crête vosgiennes » (the Mountain-Summit Race) takes place at the end of August on the stubble field trails. This is a breathtaking race from all points of view.
