EPIC! Couldn't finish the season on a low so after last week DNS at the Gravity Swimrun Race we decided to go for a super last minute registration for the first ever Cannes Swimrun La Legende. Drove on sat night all the way down to this beautiful city, and we had the best swimrun race christening ever. In the early morning Otillo-style all the teams took the same boat to the Ile Ste Margurite, the sea was pretty rough and the wind quite strong, but the organisers have been brave enough to maintain the highlight swim of the race (the traversee from the island to the land). And this as offered us a memorable 1,8km swim in a sea with some 1-1,5 mtrs waves and strong winds. Once achieved this we have been through the hills around Cannes but also had the opportunity to cut across the old town and had a run portion on the “Croisette”. A total of 22,5km (550mtrs elevation) R and 3km S (5.5 originally planned but some sections have been cancelled due to the rough sea). Some total 4h05, 19/41 teams

This first swimrun race has confirmed the feeling we had during training: swimrun rocks!  Closed the season on a high, now we can start thinking about 2018 plans…

    @aniwhorun ce sport est assez genial, imagines toi dans un trail ou de tempsen temps on se jette á l'eau

  • @dampx200 October 23

    @mud_and_macadam pas possible de mieux terminer la saison que par une escapade en Cote d'Azur dans une belle journee ensoleilee quand a la maison il fait froid et il y a la flotte

  • @dampx200 October 23

    Thanks, this sport is amazing! Way different from triathlon but if you have a solid tri base it worth a try, and in more if the race happens in the French Riviera eh eh

  • @dampx200 October 23

  • @jc_outdoor October 23

    @dampx200 yes know you are Swimrunner 👏 which races in 2018?

  • @dampx200 October 23

    @jc_outdoor surement la Gravity de Annecy (on a une revanche a prendre) puis je voudrais essayer unr course en mixte avec ma cherie sur un format plus accessible, une course en italie (il y a pas mal des courses) et pourquoi pas une autre dans le sud et dans la mer, ce fut fort agreable hier

  • @dampx200 October 23

    @jenwaar ah ah we finally made it!

  • @dampx200 October 23

    @gravity_race on a rattrappé ce DNS de la semaine derniere á la Gravity! Dailleurs une bonne idee á piquer aux organisaters de Cannes: des belles vagues d'1,5 mtrs, ca pourrait etre sympa dans le lac d'Annecy...

  • @jc_outdoor October 23

    @dampx200 en Italie uniquement des solos sauf La grosse a bergame en merit race. Essaie une courte Cote Vermeille fin juin avec ta femme. Y a plusieurs courses courte a ultra

  • @frenchie.froggy October 23
