Trail race weekend
MonbaziTrail: 20km & 12km

  • Weekend of the 5th of April 2020

MobaziTrail starts and finishes in front of the beautiful château de Monbazillac overlooking the Dordogne valley and the city of Bergerac. This trail race leads you through vineyards and forest, follows cliff faces, and crosses a river. With 95% of the race on trails it is a day for enjoying the Dordogne countryside and perhaps sampling the world famous château de Monbazillac sweet wine!

Having moved to the Dordogne in 2009 with my wife Fanny to take over the family business of Domaine de Cournet-Haut, I quickly fell in love with trail running. Having always been a keen orienteerer and mountain runner in Ireland I found that trail running was a natural progression for anyone who enjoys running off-road in beautiful surroundings.
