Run along local trails, past the historic Knights Templar house, geocite, streams, farms and chateaux.....
The local chateau
This beautiful little chateau sits on the opposite hillside
Knights Templar House
The historic Knights templar house has a wooden staircase strong enough for a horse to climb up !
St Paul La Roche - 10-12km
A nice gentle run to finish off the weeks trail running holiday.
Setting off from our accommodation we will make our way up to the village at Saint Paul La Roche.
A steady hill up to the village where you will pass the local church, the Knights Templar house mentioned in the Doomsday book ! Then past the geocite where centuries ago a meteorite crashed into the earth. The massive lump of quartz that landed has pretty much all gone, the last lump being taken by NASA !! A few lumps of white quartz can still be seen in the area, and a few local trails feature lumps of crushed up meteorite.
Lunch will be taken back at base today and you will have time to chill and relax before you head out for your local evening meal. A great Perigordian treat at a local restaurant tonight.
You are a super fast runner that wants to run alone ? - Not a problem you can also run these trails using my gps
Ancient chemins made accessible

Remnants of the meteorite still remain in the village
