The second runner must continue for 20.4 km to the finishing line, on Saint jean d’Acre promenade. Every 2km, music will accompany the race with one of our 12 bands.
New in 2022 : after a 5-year-break, the race route comes back to the old port! During the last kilometer, runners will take Dupaty street, pass by the city hall and then Maubec and Duperré docks, going along the quay side, through the old port, encouraged by the spectators.
