The Camembert Run

So, the Cannonball Run.  That uncouth stampede across the United States, from sea to shining sea.

All those big engines and bigger egos.  The brain out, foot down brashness of it all.  How undignified it all is! Wouldn’t it be so much better if it was held in France?

Of course it would.  And here at Pub2Pub Adventures, we’re making it happen.

All hail the Camembert Run.  A dignified meander through the French countryside, from cheese to shining cheese.

We’re talking a highly cultured vin and fromage-fuelled stroll from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, stopping at only the finest patisseries for our morning croissant, fuelling ourselves with only the most enchanting of café au laits, and consuming only the crustiest of baguettes with our cheesy delicacies.

And you are cordially invited to take your place in this most salubrious of convoys.  We ask only one thing.

Your steed must be a plucky little unsung hero from years past, for this is truly a journey for the retro heroes of our roads.  We’re talking vintage Renaults, classic Citroens, Vauxhall hatchbacks and ancient fiestas.  If you’ve got a Fiat Panda, this is the road trip for you.  Rollin’ in a Rover Metro or plucky Polo?  You’ll fit right in.  ‘80s Datsuns, Civics and Micra K10s will feel right at home, while the Gaelic charm of a Renault 4 or 2CV will earn you hero status.  And if you bring along a beige Austin Maestro, I’ll personally buy you a tacky model of le Tour Eiffel in celebration of your fine taste.

So there you have it.  The Camembert Run – a two-week, slow paced, cheese and wine-fuelled bimble through the French countryside from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and back, in a convoy which oozes unpretentious, plucky charm, happening between the 17th August and 01st September 2019.

We look forward to sharing a cheese board with you at the start line…


We’ll be announcing further info and prices for the Camembert Run later in the autumn, just as soon as we get around to figuring that side of things out, but the goal with this journey is to keep costs down – think camping, as opposed to the Eagle Rally’s hotels.

If you’re suitably psyched by this outline plan, and reckon you can handle the heady cheese consumption demanded by such a journey, feel free to reserve a place on the trip by dropping us an email at…
