Sportevents, organiser of dozens of trailrun and walking events every year, leads you through beautiful nature, in the south of the "Botte du Hainaut".
It offers a worthy alternative to the Trail de Chimay and the Chimay Walk which unfortunately cannot take place in 2021.

You will find the right way by following the GPX route. You can run it or walk it.
The start and finish of these routes are at Auberge du Poteaupré, nearby the Scourmont Abbey, with a choice of 11, 21, 27 or 48 km. 
Close to the French border, we lead you through unspoilt nature, with the longest distance going up to the area of l'Eau Noire.
All distances pass by the beautiful Scourmont Abbey, which is definitely worth a visit.
Would you like to learn all about Chimay, their delicious Trappists and irresistible cheeses? Then book a visit to the Chimay Museum in Auberge du Poteaupré.


You can run or hike this challenge whenever and with whom you want. If you are competitive, give us your time and we will put you in our 2021 ranking !

    The museum is an illustration of the technological know-how of village communities, but also a mirror of cultural and social changes that have passed throught the region of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse for two centuries. 

    Through scientific research, the valorization of a vast collection (tools, furniture, agricultural machinery, posters ...), events, educational animations, it is a whole knowledge and a whole history which are transmitted and share. Anchored in its time, the Ecomuseum of the Viroin also works to enhance current thinking on rurality and the notion of ecological transition.
