Caen 2014

The Caen marathon or the Marathon du Libertie as it is called was the weekend after the celebrations for the 70th anniv of the D-Day landings. I took the opportunity of combining the marathon with a cycle touring holiday of Jersey and Normandy, more of which you can read about elsewhere. I covered half the course on my cycle to Caen from the beaches so had some idea of the course which, up till the half way point followed the coast towards Caen from the start. After the halfway point the route goes inland and uphill and on country roads winding its way to the finish at museum. The day had dawned cold and windy but got hotter as the day and the miles passed. A good course passing historic landmarks. A marathon I would do again.20140615-205814-75494513.jpg
