Upcoming running events in Vaucluse

Take on a challenge and keep fit with these running events that every avid runner should add to their calendar

Taking place across different parts of the region, these rural and urban trails are perfect opportunities to explore the scenic landscapes of Vaucluse. The first route in March takes runners across the foothills of Mount Ventoux with the Trail du Ventoux, followed by the Grand Raid du Ventoux in April. Runners reconvene in May to take on La Nocturne des Papes, an urban trail snaking through Avignon; passing iconic landmarks, this route enables runners to see the ‘Cité des Papes’ from a fresh angle, before rounding off in Cabrieres d’Aigue with the Trail du Grand Luberon.
