Shame it is about 100 km from where we'll be!

Very offbeat, it starts at 8.30am :O

I'm not sure they're selling the concept the French very well yet. It seems to be all Brits!

It tends to start earlier in places which are hotter, so Australian parkruns start at 8 I believe. I'm not sure a parkrun in Normandy will need to start early :)

Still, it's progress from those recalcitrant froggies, right?! Even if it's started by expats, kudos to them for getting round idiotic French race rules...

The results are in alphabetical order, because as we know, it's not a race. And therefore, no doctor's note required :-)

I have no idea, I assume it's the whole NotARace thing? Or an enlightened bureaucrat somewhere who loves his loisirs :)
