I had the pleasure of living and working in the area back in 2012 and whilst there I met Levi (pronounced ‘Lev-ee’); personal trainer, cyclist, trail and ultra runner. A couple of years on, I made it back over for a week’s visit and he kindly agreed to help me put together a short visual tour of the magnificent running opportunities in the region.
Nice Airport, surely one of the best in terms of placement and the views on approach and take off!
Scrambling high above the Med in the Massif de l‘Esterel.
Clifftop villages are one of the many delights of the region.
Back on the red rocks of l’Esterel.
Sunset from Mt Chauve, perched just above Nice.
Stunning views over Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Èze from the tracks up at La Revère.
Èze Village; the “Eagle’s Nest”.
Threading through ruins in the hills to the north, away from the coast.
Refuelling & limbering up (for a 21% avg climb).
Brutal inclines in the heat
