Lake Oo, an emblematic Pyrenean place well known to cruciverbists, the second most visited nature site in the Pyrenees, what could be more logical for trail runners than to go there for a walk in your running shoes !!

If the first part is rather wooded, arrival at the Hospice de France allows you to discover the rest of the events - the climb to the Port of Vénasque. The landscape is not at all the same, we start to climb in altitude and approach the high mountain ...
