Ce samedi avait lieu, dans le cadre du Grand Raid de Camargue, le Marathon de Camargue, dont on a pris le départ avec @GT179.
Comptes rendus et photos à venir, un peu plus tard dans la semaine en ce qui me concerne.
On y a rencontré Nathalie, qui court pieds nus et en sandales, et Tristan, qui court en minimalistes (Altra), que l'on croisera peut-être sur ce forum, et/ou à Onnion dans deux semaines.
En attendant, voilà le parcours enregistré par mon GPS.

I cut this one close. Cutoff time was 13 hours. My friend and I crossed the line with only 25 minutes to spare!
That's all we asked for though: just to finish our first 50 miler. We've both done 50ks before and I'm here to say that back-to-back marathons is definitely next level and we couldn't have done it without running the whole way together as a team.

I'd say about 80% of the course was nice, smooth dirt and grass but the super rocky climbs and descents were frequent enough that sandals were a must and after a point of extreme exhaustion the act of slipping them off and on was too much.
Those first 11 miles felt great, too. As did the next 11 miles. Overall we...
