IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN

Living France - - DÉCOUVREZ -

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
