Bordeaux is the 6th largest city in France and the center of an important wine-producing region. The historic part of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site and boasts the largest number of preserved buildings historical buildings in France after Paris. The centerpiece of running in Bordeaux is along the the Garonne River, which divides the city, with historic ‘Old Bordeaux’ located on the ‘left bank’ (west side).
The signature run in Bordeaux is along a series of paths and parks fronting the Garonne River. We’ve also put together several ‘runseeing’ tours of historic Bordeaux. The city also contains numerous parks and gardens, which are also enjoyable for running.
Bordeaux has a good public transport system, called the TBM, with a sleek 3-line tram system and an extensive bus network.
