The Nontronnaise cutlery will host Sunday (March 5th) visitors (fast) on its premises: the runners of the 5th Trail of Grands Couteliers.

The 5th Grand Trail des Couteliers, which will take place on Sunday, March 5, 2017, will sport Nontron and the Périgord Vert for a race that promises to be full of surprises! 12km? 24km? Running or walking? General Leclerc Avenue will let the cars make room for hundreds of runners.

The urban and the country wait for them, to highlight the heritage of the capital of Périgord Vert and its surroundings. Thus the crowd will move at a run through the picturesque streets of the old city center to go through the cutlery, discover the old quarries and walk through an old railway tunnel and a viaduct with breathtaking views of the Bandiat Valley, the river thanks to which so many knives have emerged for centuries.

If this visit of the workshops remains a little fast to admire all the outlines, the event remains an invitation to return to Nontron to discover the workshops and all facets of this talented city, like the Pole Crafts from Nontron.
