itineraire 2022 05 09

Rest stops:

  • Frequency: approximately every 10 km on  the Adults course / approximately every 5 km on the Children’s course.
  • Duration: it varies between 1h/1h30 (lunch stop) and 30 min (intermediate stops).

First aid stations & Pick-up shuttles :

Every 3 km or so (3/4 of an hour’s walk) with a medical team at the service of pilgrims. If they are physically prevented from continuing the walk, the pilgrims will then be evacuated by minibus to the next stop or to a stop for tired pilgrims, and then taken to the bivouac. Any pilgrim who stops after lunch, will not walk again until the evening.

Shuttles to or from the pilgrimage . . .

Thanks to the shuttles organized by the ‘Transport’ teams of the pilgrimage (burgundy vests), you can join us along the way, or even leave earlier, if you do not have your 3 days off.

– Shuttles departing from Chartres station, on Saturday lunchtime, to reach the adults’ lunch stop (in Gallardon). Other shuttles are planned on other days to reach some stops (see table below).

Shuttles between the place of the bivouac and the nearest (or best served) station scheduled morning and evening.  At fixed times, these shuttles take pilgrims who wish to leave the bivouac to the station and pick up those who want to join the pilgrimage.
