Le Ban de la Roche is a great base for runners, whether you are training for a big race or just enjoy a run in beautiful surroundings.

You can run on the road beside the lake from the house, or you can take one of the many trails above the house into the woods and mountains behind.

Felicity is a keen trail runner and is more than happy to advise!

There are some fantastic events in and around Talloires for runners. Here are some of our highlights:

March – Trail de l’Aigle Blanche – a 10.4 km trail run on snow in the nearby ski resort of Manigod. This magical run starts at 6pm as the sun is setting on the mountains and finishes in the dark – head-torches and some experience on snow recommended! Delicious tartiflette dinner at the end (optional) and a Reblochon for all finishers!

April – Marathon and 10 km along the shores of Lake Annecy

May – Annecy Maxi-Race – a mega-weekend of trail running with multiple races from 16-119 km, ranging all around the mountains surrounding lake Annecy. Tough ascents, amazing views!

September – Ancilevienne – a mad lap of the lake (46 km) as a pair – one running, one cycling, swapping as you go…

September – Talloires O Feminin – a 22 km Swim and Run Race for female pairs, starting and ending in Talloires

September – Color’Annecy – 5 km of running fun in Annecy, being splashed with all the colours of the rainbow

November – Vitalavie – 21 km of mixed road and trail along the East side of the Lake from Annecy-le-vieux to Talloires and back.
