Crazy Barefoot Marathon - Rotterdam
By Christian Pinon

Samedi dernier a eu lieu le Crazy Barefoot Marathon à Rotterdam. Avec 12 personnes au départ et quelques accompagnateurs, l'ambiance était très amicale. Nous avons couru 42,73 km en 5h11' sur un beau parcours. Les routes et sentiers en sont très bien entretenus aux Pays-Bas.
La photo ci-joint vous donne un aperçu de l'ambiance.

Nous avons même eu droit à la présence de journalistes dont voici une courte vidéo (la plus courte) :

J'étais le seul étranger présent.

Charity founder Paul walked the width of England with no shoes in a marathon 10 day trek but was kept going by the kindness of strangers - or something as small as the sun breaking through the clouds.

1812 Challenge & Half Maraton
August 27, 2017

By Tristan

This race is a favorite of mine, and still the only one I've done in my home state of NY. It honors the War of 1812, and the race finishes on the battlefield in Sackets Harbor. The town was a key Navy shipyard and it's headquarters for the Great Lakes. This will be my third time at the event, but for the first time I only entered the half marathon. I hadn't kept up with my running like I should have through the summer, and went over a month with my longest runs of only 5 or 6 miles. In the 3-4 weeks prior to the race I did work back up to a couple 10 milers and just a few short sprint workouts too.

Still I was feeling pretty good t, and very excited to see what I could do in the half marathon after having broke my personal best back in April by...​
