Chalon Sur Saône Waterfront

The commune of Chalon Sur Saône rests on the banks of the Saône River, where a number of waterfront paths and picturesque bridges create plenty of opportunities for running. Runners can cruise along the river on the Quai Bellevue for miles, but we’ve mapped a particular nice 7 km section near the center. Follow the path paralleling the D906 for ~3 km to the Parc des Expositions de Chalon. At this point, runners can cross over the river and turn RIGHT. Cross La Gennissa on the D19, then loop counter-clockwise around the little island until reaching the D19 bridge. From here, cross back to the north bank of the river and return to the start.

  • 7 km out and back, with a 2 km loop
