let’s do the Marathon, says Emmy
AnElephant just about has a fit
you think that it’s fun
to go for a ridiculously long and potentially fatally exhausting 42.2 kilometre run
no silly, let’s write about it

Cavalaire sur Mer – the Finishing Line

So next week sees the inaugural Marathon of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, a major event for our thriving area.

There is, as the title suggests, a full length marathon race, all 26 miles (42 kilometres) plus change.
This features a field of internationally renowned competitors along what is perhaps the most beautiful route in world running.

St Maxime – the Start

The main race starts in St Maxime and ends right here in our very own Cavalaire sur Mer, passing through Grimaud, Cogolin, Gassin, Saint-Tropez, Ramatuelle, and La Croix-Valmer.

There is an array of subsidiary events, including two half-marathons, a series of Relays, a Breakfast Run, and various hikes and family walks.

More news next week.
Maybe we can still be persuaded to take part!
