Enduro du Touquet - The Race

The Le Touquet Enduro is very much a family and biker event, combining the serious competitor challenge of the race with a mad social weekend for all concerned. The roar of motorbike engines can be heard everywhere in the chic seaside resort often into the early hours. Even if you are not really a motorbike fan, the site of some 1000 + motorbikes and quads screaming along the sand dunes is an exhilarating experience.
The main race for Le Touquet Sand Enduro, as it is also known, takes place on  the Sunday. More recent years has seen the increasing popularity of the quad bike race on the Saturday with some 150 riders taking part.

The Route

The start line of the enduro motorcycle race is on the main beach close to the Aqualud water park and fun fair. The route stretches some 16Kms continuing along the beach past Stella Plage and Merlimont. The Sunday morning sees a continued swell in the numbers of people and traffic entering the town. St Josse Farmhouse is an excellent self catering villa to rent for the weekend or longer holiday. It provides a tranquil escape from the biker bash of the town yet within a short drive of a good viewing spot.

From St Josse Farmhouse  its an easy 10 minute drive down to the beach at Stella Plage. The beach at Stella Plage tends to be less crowded and you can get a good view of the mad biker action. For more details and how to book holiday cottages then please visit our website.

Recent environmental concerns with the preservation of Le Touquet’s sand dunes have seen some changes in the route over the past few years, but careful management and consultation with environmental groups should see the continuation of this exhilarating motorbike race for years to come. The race takes place around the end of Januray early February each year. Even if you can’t make the amazing  Enduro. Le Touquet – Paris Plage  is a beautiful 1920’s style holiday resort with glorious beaches and magical pine forests and has something to offer tourists all year round.
