Ultra-Trail des Païens
From crossing the Taennchel massif with its rocks and enigmatic and mysterious inscriptions to climbing the majestic Mount St. Odile, live a mystical experience between mountains, vineyards, picturesque villages and castles.
A mystic experience
This format of more than 100 kilometers will start from Bergheim, elected favorite village of the French in 2022. After a passage in the wine trails, you will quickly reach the highest point of the race on the Taennchel plateau along the first pagan wall of the course. You will then leave the department of Haut-Rhin when you enter the enclosure of Haut-Koenigsbourg which will mark the beginning of your ride through about twenty castles. You will then alternate between typical villages with half-timbered houses, the Alsatian vineyards and the wooded massifs sheltering the castles of the Middle Ages. The end of the tour follows the same paths as the 50K, making you discover the Mont Sainte-Odile and its pagan wall as well as the Celtic atmosphere of the Heidenkopf area. In the last kilometers, you will cross the Romanesque town of Rosheim before crossing the finish line on the ramparts of Obernai.
