Indeed, there exist around fifteen 100km runs on national level and the one in Millau is far the most important, since every year on the last weekend of September, it reunites around 1500 competitors at the start.

Le Fest'Trail Causses & Rougier 

An eco-friendly event, to discover the richness of a remarkable territory, at the heart of the Grands Causses Regional Natural Park. Exceptional landscapes, but also a regional patrimony with a departure at the foot of the castle of Montaigut, which dominates the valley of the Rougier, from the top of its rocky promontory; or the passage by the rock of Caylus, ancient fortified site of the counts of Saint-Affrique. And finally the know-how of our local producers, whose products will come to garnish the aid stations as well as the tables for a well deserved meal.
