A run to re­mem­ber 2

Living France - - Décourez -

If pound­ing the streets of Paris doesn’t sound like your thing, then try the more var­ied 15km D-Day race run­ning from 26-27 March. Far from a gen­tle jog, the in­tense ob­sta­cle course that goes across sand, sea and for­est, is or­gan­ised in com­mem­o­ra­tion of those in­volved in D-Day more than 70 years ago. The race­go­ers be­gin ei­ther on the beach or swim­ming from a boat, and will en­counter both man-made and nat­u­ral ob­sta­cles along their way. Those who wish to en­ter can do so on their own or as part of a team, so long as you can find three oth­ers crazy enough to com­pete! ddayrace.com The In­ter­na­tional Cheese and Wine Fair takes place in Coulom­miers (Île-de-France) from the 18-21 March. The event in­volves over 350 ex­hibitors, each pro­vid­ing a se­lec­tion of dif­fer­ent tast­ing prod­ucts to be sam­pled by around 60,000 vis­i­tors. The event in­cludes a hand­ful of com­pe­ti­tions and awards are given to the best brie as well as the most flam­boy­ant wines. Ad­di­tion­ally, ‘guess the weight of the cow’ is al­ways an en­ter­tain­ing spec­ta­cle. foire-fro­mages-et-vins.com
