Not sure what time the Charels Ehrman stadium is open until but when it is open anyone can use the track - as long as there are no official events on. I often go with a friend between 6 and 7 weekday evenings, I would think Menton is the same.

Hi
Most stadt's have a tartan track, usually at least 2 lanes, most normal 4 or 6, araound the edge.
They are there because during term time the schools use them for some of their PE lessons.
There are 4 lanes at Careii in Menton (near Intermarche), not sure about the stadt in Garavan, also 2 lanes at Sospel (!).
Most seem to be used by locals during the evenings, I've seen many athletes doing reps at Careii during the evening.
So my advice would be to find your nearest stadt and go along for a bit of exploration, you can only get chased off, but I doubt it.
Good luck

The Charles Ehrman stadium (just behind Palais Nikaia) in Nice seems to be freely accessible - at least up until 19h30-20h00, I've often been running there with a friend in the evenings - there is a small track just outside the stadium as well as the one actually inside.
