The Foulées de la Cathédrale are back in Chartres this Saturday!

After more than two years of absence, the Foulées de la Cathédrale are back, this Saturday, October 16, in Chartres. A sporting event anchored in the Eurelian landscape which is still very successful. Despite the still unstable health context and the compulsory health pass, this year will be no exception. In total, more than 5,000 people (including the Pink Foulées) who will meet at the Place des Épars, to walk or run.

The Foulées de la Cathédrale will end this day in style. Co-organized by L’Écho Républicain and ASPTT Chartres, this is the 26th edition of this emblematic event of the department. In view of the departure time, participants are also advised to bring a light.


At 8 p.m. sharp, it will be time to let go of the beasts. In this race, the intentions will be very different from the Foulées roses. While, of course, in a popular event like this, fun remains a priority, many will have a keen eye on the stopwatch … the other on the course! In view of the departure time, participants are also advised to bring a light.

Events, races and associations: everything you need to know about the Foulées roses and the Foulées de la Cathédrale, this Saturday, in Chartres


New for this year, the route is changing. Usually organized on a three-kilometer loop performed three times, the race will be over two laps only for a total distance, slightly longer than in previous years, of 9.8 kilometers. But the new route remains in the heart of the Eurelian capital and preserves the fundamentals of the historic route: the Butte des Charbonniers, the banks of the Eure and above all the mythical coast towards the cathedral!


There will be a little more than 1,500 at the start of this final race of the day. Among them, some well-known runners in the department such as Hanchois Sylvain Dodé and Julie Chuberre-Dodé, both winners in 2019.
