Running/racing in the Pyrenees

Not sure if this will be of interest to any members.

We are Gary (former British/English fell running champion) and Debbie (UKA Endurance Coach) Devine (Pudsey and Bramley AC) we live in the French Pyrenees where we run a guest house


We thought your members might be interested in experiencing racing/running abroad in the mountains of the Pyrenees. Some of your members maybe be daunted by the prospect but rest assured the races are open to everyone. We are both experienced fell/mountain runners who have raced on the continent for many years and are on hand to help with anything and everything i.e race entry/advice/transfers.


Gary will more than likely be racing the majority of the races.
