€80 for the half in Normandie?

Might pop over if the weekend is free!


Just don't forget your medical certificate and "3 points d'attachement" on your race belt for the number. Wink

Oh and they're a bit more competitive so up your game a bit.

Long distance is a BIG thing in france, they just don't feel the need to boast about it.


Absolutely - had a bit of a panic in Aix en Provence last year, but managed to upgrade my BTF membership over the phone to cover the medical reqs!

I was described as “finally, someone normal” by some tourists the night before the race. They meant “fat, and having a beer”! Wink

So. Announced on the Embrunman's organisers facebook page last night - ASO is buying the event.

Mixed French reactions. It sure has grown into a BIG triathlon festival. We will have to wait and see what happens next.
