Hard to not run a race when that start is less than a minute from where you are.
Plus everybody and their dogs know you are a runner, meet them every day while walking
with the dogs or run. NO escape ..except maybe if the weather turned ugly!

But on that Oct 28 despite Time Change; I had time to walk the dogs, pass by the “Salle des Fetes” and learn that the start was at 9;45 am when I for some reason thought it was at 8 am

After an hour walk with the dogs, I changed clothes, got to the registration desk, handle my Medical certificate, paid my 10 euros, got my Goodies bag with discount coupons.
I was set in less than 15 mn on same day race.

The course was through a forest on a trail I know very well as I have been around for more than
3 years now

One very well located Aid Station was set at the start of a loop, which became Aid Station II
at end of Loop. Smart Thinking!

An hour and 12 mn later, as I passed the finishing line i was giving a Coupon for a Free Sandwich,

If Crepes and Beers were there for sale for Family and Fans;

A long table was set up with plenty of Free Food and Drinks as well:

Water, Coke, Sprite, Juice, Coffee, and Wine; Cake, Chips, Chocolate,  Cheese, Dry fruits

Plenty of prices and Flowers were given away for Best Runners, all for a mere € 10 Entry Fee …
Greedy Race Organisers from all around the World should come here and learn.

 

Absolutely a local race to run. Again Thanks for this very well organized event
