Eygalieres Course Di Quieu Blanc

Eygalieres is a Provencal postcard-perfect village in the heart of the Parc Naturel des Alpilles. To get a flavour for the town read why Eygalieres is always worth a visit. Alternatively, meet some of the residents like local DJ Manolo-J who is getting the party started, Sabrina who is sharing a bit of yoga zen and Jane who is ready to guide you through the food, wine and culture of Provence.

Alpilles Views #ProvenceOn April 19th, some of these folks and about 300 others will be lacing their running shoes for one of two trail runs (7km and 15km) the Course Pédestre Di Quieu Blanc. This is a nickname which means — little white bird.

The race is being made possible by the work of sponsors, the clubs of St-Remy-De-Provence and St-Cannat and Foyer Rural d’Eygalières. In addition, there will be some 80+ volunteers on the day of the race.

Both courses wind through the beautiful natural surroundings of the Alpilles using some of the local hiking and walking trails. The 7km loop has 140m of elevation change, and the 15km version has 260m of elevation change. Are you ready for a spring challenge?  Here is the website for more details.

At the end of the race, you can proudly wear your T-shirt confirming your participation in the first Course Pédestre Di Quieu Blanc trail run in Eygalieres.
