La Ronde Cérétane
18th September - 19th September
La Ronde Cérétane – Céret marathon
Céret throbs with life throughout this sporting weekend, with Sardanes, music, gastronomy, Catalan parties and a pasta evening on Saturday followed by the internationally-renowned Ronde Céretane on Sunday.
Live music accompanies the 9.30am departure of the competitors in ’la Ronde Céretane’ as they set off under the plane trees in the Avenue d’Espagne.
International athletes, runners in fancy dress, and participants of many different nationalities all come together in September to share the pleasure and the passion of this challenging running event.
All along the course, the organisers arrange stands with various beverages: jus de pomme du verger, Sangria flamenco, grappe des Côtes du Roussillon, Porro de Muscat.., and a chance to taste local fruits.
(We recommend the alcohol for the spectators, not the competitors!)
There are also food stalls and live music all along the course.
If the main race is a bit steep for you, why not try the shorter Endiablée (10km), the Festive (5km) or the Esmorzar (9km hike)? There’s also a children’s race, Els Nins, so the whole family can get involved.
