On 7th April 2019, join thousands of runners in exploring Lyon’s heritage and countryside thanks to Lyon Urban Trail.

See Lyon in a New Light

Lyon Urban Trail promises to show you the city ‘like you’ve never seen it before’. Running the various routes through the city is the perfect way to discover the city’s patrimony, rich heritage and points of interest.

The full 37km route takes you around Lyon, Caluire-et-Cuire and Sainte Foy-lès-Lyon, along with Lyon’s two hills and its two rivers.

Customise Your Run

There are different course lengths that can be opted for – 8km, 14km, 24km, or 37km.

The 8km is perfect for beginners – not kicking off until 11:30am, and focusing on collectivity and fun. It’s sure to be pressure-free – a perfect way to spend a late morning with friends, all whilst keeping fit.

If running is too intense for you, you can always choose the 12km hike.

Race up Stairs and Inclines

Given that the courses run through the centre of Lyon, runners can expect a few steps and inclines to tackle. Don’t let this put you off, however, as the courses are shortened accordingly (for example, 8km rather than 10km).



Get Your Training In

Lyon Urban Trail has also sorted out your training sessions. These will take place on 8th, 12th, and 22nd March at 7:30pm. The first two practices will be 8km and the final will be 14km. Don’t forget to subscribe here – but don’t worry, its completely free.
