In Montpellier, running enthusiasts put on their trainers more often than elsewhere!
Even if you live in the centre of the city, you can quickly get to the banks of the river Lez as far as Aiguelongue and its pretty hidden corners. There is no shortage of routes to the zoo, to the Peyrou garden, around the Jacques Coeur basin or along the sea in Palavas. And many races are organised, notably the Marathon, as well as a new kind of guided tour: in small strides.
Excursions and hiking
Montpellier is located in the heart of a territory as varied as it is vast: from the surrounding garrigues to the Pic Saint-Loup, to the Cévennes, nature is king!
Put on your trainers, we’ll take you on a walk to discover the beautiful landscapes of our region! See the walks
The Way of St James of Compostella – Chemin de St Jacques
In Montpellier, it is not the pebbles of Little Thumb that we are looking for, but the 300 nails installed on the ground in the city by the municipality to mark the passage of the Way of St James.
