Pull on your trainers and practise your sport among superb landscapes

Don’t you want to use your holidays to get fit? Your holiday destination is an ideal starting point for beginning running as a sport and feeling your body function physically transform into its best self. Here are 3 good reasons to pull on your trainers and get up and run wild on holiday.

1. An accessible, all-terrain sport

Running is a top sport for two main reasons: it's practical and runs can be varied according the terrain you choose.

A decent pair of trainers and a bottle of water is all you need to run along a beach or in the heart of a forest. Whether you're a gentle jogger or a competitive runner, you can go at your own pace either alone or with a group. Keep up the pace and soon enough you’ll see yourself running to the finish line faster than you’ve ever done before.

Club Med Resorts benefit from stunning locations with varied terrain that sporty types will love, even if they're on a "relaxing" holiday!

Discover the best Resorts with trails for mountain hikes:

✔️ Walk for miles, between sea and sky at the Sant’Ambroggio Resort in Corsica. Nestled in pine forests and scrubland, the Opion Resort in Provence is perfect for hillside runs. Or head to alpine forests and stay at the Arcs Panoramas Resort, with its breathtaking view across the Vallée de la Tarentaise.

2. Feel good in your trainers

Whether you want to keep in shape, start getting fit or simply lift your spirits and get back to your best self, your Resort will have plenty of places where you can enjoy a jog. Running is good for the heart and is a great immune system booster and can even stretch your mind to think above and beyond. What if you'd like to use your Club Med holiday as a full-on fitness break? Before attacking a run, why not ease your body into action with a stretching session?

In addition to jogging, Club Med offers other activities that are designed to get you fit:

✔️ Nordic walking, a gentle and complete endurance sport
✔️ Cycling, to develop heart rhythm without straining your joints too much
✔️ Aqua fitness, a friendly sport that is both gentle and invigorating and accessible to all
✔️ Hiking and sports walks, allowing you to admire the scenery whilst exercising

3. The promise of exploration and getting away from it all

Seaside, countryside or mountain paths, each destination has its charms. Put on your trainers and allow yourself to be motivated and spiritually awakened by the lapping of the waves on a morning jog on a fine sandy beach as you set on set on your path towards greatness.

Around your Resort, you can follow a marked trail with a difficulty level and distance that suits you. On the programme: different landscapes to explore and stay in shape.

Escape and explore:

✔️ Along a coastline, across fields, up a mountain, each of our destinations has its own special charm. Slip on your trainers and immerse yourself in the early morning sound of waves washing up to the beach as you jog along its white sand.

✔️ Head out of the Resort and hike along a marked path - there are paths for all levels that cover a variety of distances. On the menu: diverse landscapes to take your mind off things while doing your body a lot of good.
