Pyrenees Charity Trek 2013

LE CHEMIN DE LA LIBERTÉ

A WW2 Escape Route – 30th June – 5th July 2013 –Pyrenees Poster copy

Help ‘The Play Barn Project ” raise money for a great cause and challenge yourself

mentally and physically on the way.

This was one of the three main Escape Lines in the Pyrenees used by Allied

Servicemen, and French Evaders trying to reach the Free French Forces in North

Africa.

The Chemin is a superb, and fairly tough, 4 day trek through the foothills of the pre-

Pyrenees and then into the high mountains of the Ariege before a spectacular descent

into Spain. To have made this trek at night, under nourished, ill equipped and hunted

by the Germans and the Milice would have been a remarkable endeavour!
