Courmayeur is nestled in the valley beneath Monte Bianco and the highest commune in Italy at 1224m in the Aosta valley. This pretty Italian town is steeped in alpine history and provides a great base to run trails from. There are stunning backdrops to this introduction to mountain trails in the Italian Alps. On this holiday we provide a 2 day running adventure break aimed at those looking to discover trail running in the mountains for the first time, as well as more experienced runners looking for a spot of comfort whilst pursuing their passion. There are many route options around the area which will take us up both sides of the valley. The trails vary from pine woods and riverside trails to rocky exposed routes, something for everyone. We pick some really beautiful 10 mile (approx.) trails for you whilst you which show off the area at its best, so you get a good flavour of what to expect on our longer adventures. You will get some breath taking views of Monte Bianco. Since this holiday is focussed on comfort and running, the trail runs will last between 2-4 hours a day (depending on your ability) leaving you plenty of time to relax and explore Courmayeur and possibly even take a trip up the brand new Skyway Monte Bianco which connects with France via the Aiguille du Midi and provides breathtaking viws of the Aosta valley and some of the highest peaks of the Western Alps including Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn, the Gran Paradiso and the Grand Combin. You will be staying in a 4* spa hotel with access to a pool and other amenities so you can unwind and enjoy the views. On the Friday evening we will meet up for dinner with your guide as well as some of the Run the Wild Team. As with all Run the Wild holidays, all you have to do is book your flights, turn up and run - we will take care of the rest!
