LUT by Night

The event in a few words

Ready to join the running party in Rh么ne? 馃帀

Overlooking Lyon, nestled between the Rh么ne (the river this time) and the Sa么ne 馃寠, the LUT by Night will get you pumped up all night long! 馃対 Even in the chilly November temperatures 鉂勶笍, a thorough warm-up will have you on fire! 馃敟 Get ready to turn the pavement into a dancefloor with this exciting urban trail in Lyon! 馃

Prepare for a wild night ! The City of Lights will shine all through the night 馃幎. Three new tracks are waiting for you to run (not dance) in this 10th edition of the Lyon Urban Trail by Night! 馃帀 In the heart of this historical city, under the stars (or rather your headlamp 馃敠), you'll experience the magical ambiance over 10 km, 20 km, or 30 km races against the clock 鈴憋笍. And because nights are also for partying 馃コ, a 10 km 馃懟 non-timed run is available.

This show takes place on the right bank of the Sa么ne and is definitely not to be missed! During your urban trail, you'll shake the Place Saint-Jean 鉀 and the rue Tramassac, before making your way up the heights of Lyon 馃憜, step by step, to the iconic hill of Fourvi猫re! There, you can unleash your best moonwalks馃暫 on its quaint cobblestone streets 馃憻. Don't stop 'til you get enough as the King of Pop sang! 馃帳 And as this year marks the event's first decade 馃巶, it's not just the distances that are changing... The routes are getting a makeover too! 馃槸 Like an actor stepping into a trail runner's shoes 馃憻, you'll start at the legendary Roman Theatre of Fourvi猫re, on the stage of the grand amphitheatre 馃幁. The excitement will be at its peak, your headlamp might just blow up! 馃挕 For your finish, you'll be cheered on by a crowd at the foot of the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvi猫re 鉀, with a magical view overlooking all of Lyon 馃ぉ.

After your run, in the early morning, you won't have a hangover 馃. Instead, you might face some muscle soreness! 馃槀 So, to avoid a painful next day, reward your efforts with some Lyonnais specialties in THE capital of French gastronomy 馃嵔锔. Start with a slice of p芒t茅 en cro没te and some Saint-Marcellin cheese (yes, this delicious soft cheese hails from Is猫re, Dr么me, or Savoie 馃構), and finish with a coussin de Lyon for a sweet note of chocolate ganache wrapped in almond paste and flavored with cura莽ao 馃い. The perfect end to an unforgettable night! 馃槣

Come heat up the atmosphere 馃尅锔 and show off your best dance moves at the LUT by Night! 馃暫
