After a three-year break due to inclement weather and the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nearly time for the 2021 Grand Trail des Templiers. This race annually gathers top runners from western Europe and often the rest of the world for a fall barn burner. The 81-kilometer (50-mile) event takes place in Millau, France and climbs some 3,690 meters (12,000 feet) over largely runnable though very hilly terrain, leading to fast finishes and an exciting race.
