FACILITIES

FONT-ROMEU, FRANCE

 

"Runners' World" on Font-Romeu: "top 7 places to altitude train in the world".

"After a dazzling ride through the eastern Pyrenees, you arrive on a plateau village with several hotels, two tracks, dozens of dirt trails and the National Center for Altitude Training. This is Font-Romeu, a classical high-altitude training ground since the 1968 Summer Olympics... It’s been the part-time European training ground for some of the world’s top distance runners. Paula Radacliffe maintains a second home there, while elite Spanish trail

runner Kilian Jornet and U.S. 10,000m record-holder Galen Rupp have all spent time there in recent years. Font-Romeu is a classic French mountain village, complete with Alpine architecture, elegant French and Italian restaurants, mountain-inspired outdoor gear stores and many savory bread and sausage shops. Accordingly, the people are friendly and accommodating with an appreciation for endurance sports, the mountains, and a good meal".
