From the baby Alps- (Alpilles) past the Massif Central to the Pyrenees we will travel with Patrick Vidal along the Mediterranean Sea! Sunshine, vineyard, mountains, olive groves, markets and ancient ruins and more await us!
Patrick Vidal is the prefect antidote to the "aloof Frenchman" stereotype. He's got more energy than that famous battery bunny, smiles effortlessly, and has an insatiable curiosity about the world. He joins me (Chris Coleman) virtually to tour us along the Mediterranean coastline to show us some amazing places!

DATE CHANGE!! Due to the current month-long lockdown in France we must change the dates from April to June!
New dates: June 26-July 17, 2021
We start on Saturday, June 26 at 11:00am-12:00pm CST with a live virtual event with Patrick Vidal who will be on location in the South of France.
The general format of information in written and video content each week:
The actual mileage is approximately 40 miles per week. If you wish to join the walking challenge, set a goal that works for you! You may decide upon an alternate pacing schedule if you want to have more gentle pace. Walking, running, yoga, cleaning your house, grocery shopping - time spent doing most all sorts of activities add up to mileage. Set your pace and keep track on your own with a Fitbit or keep track as you wish. You may also prefer to not partake in the virtual walking part of the experience and enjoying the cultural and historical aspects- it's all good!
Along the Mediterranean Sea will travel from the baby Alps (Alpilles) past the Massif Central to the Pyrenees. Along the way we will explore ancient sites, markets, wine tasting, country paths in awe-inspiring countryside, seaside and mountain scapes.
1) A good pair of walking shoes/hiking boots (if you are taking part in the virtual walking challenge)
2) A Fitbit or an alternate method to keep track of distance (remember we will supply you with a conversion table to refer to for all your other daily activities that add up to mileage!)
3) A sense of curiosity & adventure-we are so excited to do this with you!
4) Sign up with your email and program payment of $99
