AROUND THE LAKE
The proposed route has 80 kms and 1.200 m+. It is a continuous up and down along the road with a long descent in between, but be ready for step climbs!
The run is around 9 kms on the south area of Les Salles-sur-Verdon.
It is quite flat considering the are, with a total of 170 m+ .
This circle route goes close to the town of Bauduen and rounds its mountain. It is not a long run but there are no possible shortcuts once we start the rounding, so it is recommended to take our own water for the 18 kms and 460 m+ run.
Some sections would require to walk uphill, but lets focus in the views!
