  • Soory for my French-English....image

  • C'est une honte, ils n'ont plus le marathon de la route il - que c'était une bonne course.

    J'ai aussi fait le demi-marathon et le 10k, les deux parcours agréable.

  • Bonjour,

    le marathon est remplacé par un maratrail encore plus prêt des monuments historique et commémoratif.

    Venez essayer... vous ne serez pas déçue.


    The marathon is replaced by a Mara Trail (same distance)


    You run more nearly of  the historic and commemorative monuments.


    Come and try you will not be disappointed.
