Do you like to run but have not yet made the choice of your discipline? Here is a little reminder of your options, before you start running... Jogging, running, it's always running. So what's the difference? In fact, it's all about intensity.
We take you running in the towns of the Basque coast. The idea is to play sports every day and keep in shape during your holidays, near your accommodation or without leaving the city. Let's go for our best city racing spots :

Starting at the ocean, you can then go up high in the mountains, to transform this little jogging into a trail! This is the magic of the Basque Country. Photo : @Guide of the Basque Country
If you prefer a more natural environment, more rustic tracks and a calmer atmosphere, you should go for the trail. Trail running is a nature race, which is practiced on trails and dirt roads.
Depending on your level of training, you can run in the plains or along the coast, with a low vertical drop or in the mountains, until you reach the highest passes. We show you our most beautiful trails :

To see some beautiful photos of the mountains of the Basque Country, we tested the Iparla ridges (fr) for you while hiking.
Participating in an event is always motivating and will push you to be regular in your training. Here are the major trail running events in the Basque Country (fr).
You are now ready to pace the Basque Country, play sports and keep in shape even during your holidays!
