X Trail Corrèze Dordogne

Much more than a trail

featured in Events calendar Updated

Ultra Trail event in Argentat sur Dordogne and in Xaintrie, the Corrèze "terra incognita".

Winding through the gorges of the Dordogne and the Maronne, the runners follow a route surrounded by history, legends and incredible natural riches. 

No roads, few paths, lots of singles...followed by a gourmet meal at the end.

Five nature trails and races include:

  • Ultra Trail "X Trail Corrèze Dordogne" - 103km (night departure from Argentat), 4,600m elevation gain.
  • Grand Trail des Tours - 53km from the mysterious Xaintrie to Argentat, 2,500m elevation gain.
  • Les Balcons de la Dordogne - 26km (departure from Argentat), 930m elevation gain.
  • L'Argentat Trail - 14km, 410m elevation gain, start and finish in Argentat.
  • The Barge Trail - 9km, 190m elevation gain, start and finish in Argentat.

There is the possibility of running in teams of three to five runners, over the 26km and 53km or in a relay (in two or four) over the 103km - this way the trail becomes a team sport.

There are four hikes as part of the event:

  • La Grande Rando des Tours - 37km, 2,000m elevation gain.
  • Hike of the Balcons de la Dordogne - 26km and 850m elevation gain.
  • Argentat Hillside hike - 14km and 400m elevation gain.
  • Hike the Barge Trail - 9km and 190m elevation gain.
