Translayon 2012: 8th-10th June – still a few places for walkers left

The start of the 2011 Translayon in Cléré-sur-Layon

There are still a few places left for those who want to take part in the annual three-day walk down the Layon, although all the places for the horse and carriage event are now taken. The dates are Friday 8th June to Sunday 10th and you cover some 85-90 kilometres, so around 30 a day, so you need to be reasonably fit. It is well worth doing, especially the latter part which is more scenic. The 2011 edition started in Cléré-sur-Layon and ended at Chalonnes where the Layon flows into La Loire.  

Details are here.
