Racing is definitely at the top of my mind at the moment (Fall races to enjoy in France)…. this post dates from mid July, so you can tell iI have been thinking about this season for a while !
We have some really great races in and around Paris in the fall. I have signed up for 4 so far, and am impatiently waiting for registration to open for a fifth. Here are the races I have chosen and my motivations for doing so :
2. September 27 – Paris Versailles : an iconic 16K going from Paris to Versailles. I have never done this race but it is one of the most well known in Paris. Everyone talks about the hills though and I have not trained at all with hill work…. hmmm. We’ll see !
3. October 11 – 10K in Nogent : a small race in a town near where I live. I was looking for a race that particular weekend and distance + location fit perfectly.
4. October 25 – Half marathon of Vincennes. I was looking for a half marathon that fit into my training plan, and this one fit the bill. This will only be my second half marathon (first one here). Not to mention it is about 3 miles from my house !
5. November 22, the Four Castles race south of Paris. I have heard great things about this, how pretty it is running past five castles actually ! (photo credits : race site) but registration is not yet open.
I am impatiently waiting for race season to start !
What is on your race calendar for the fall ? I will be in the NY/NJ area on November 11. Anyone know if any races on that day ?
