IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN
You can see the finish line from the start point at the Marathon du Mont St-Michel but with spectacular views of the UNESCO World Heritage site to enjoy, this is one race you’ll be in no hurry to finish. Taking place on 28 May, the race starts in Cancale and passes through several villages including Le Vivier-sur-Mer and Cherrueix before finishing up at the foot of Mont St-Michel.
If you don’t fancy running the whole thing, there are four other routes available including a 5km women-only race and a 10km route for beginners. The course is totally flat, meaning runners can easily achieve a personal best – if they don’t get too distracted by the views of the ‘Wonder of the West’ that is! marathondumontsaintmichel.com
