Dieppe – Waterfront & ‘Runseeing’ Tour

Flickr: Jim Linwood

This is a 6.6 km ‘runseeing’ tour includes all of the best places to run in Dieppe: seafront promenade, Château de Dieppe, and two important churches.

Start at the Port de Dieppe near the train station, and run along the marina-side path toward the sea for 1.3 km, to the Seaman Memorial. Then run along the 1.5 km the brick-lined seafront promenade, which has great views of the water and the area’s cliffs. At the end of the promenade, you’ll double back to Canada Square (memorial to the 900 Canadian soldiers who were killed in the 1942 Allied raid on Dieppe), and then to the 14th-century Château de Dieppe. Do a loop around the castle to the viewpoint (Mirador), then along the Boulevard de la Mer, which has great views. Turn LEFT on Av. Isidor Bloch and run briefly to the Lycee, which has a nice running track. The last section is a run through the historic center of Dieppe: Take the tree-lined Chem. de la Chapelle Saint-Nicolas east, to the Rue de la Barre/St.-Jacques to the St.-Jacques Church and the port.
