France 25 June: Menton - Théoule-sur-Mer

Mama mia! Ciao bella Italia!

Splitting the team this morning in Milano meant leaving a lot of friends; we promised we would send them sun from the côte d’azur.

The French run took off nicely; TV reporters were waiting for us at the border and took very nice pictures with the famous landscape of Menton’s Bay as a backdrop.

A few minutes later we were visiting a Waldorf school, down Monte Carlo’s impressive cliff.

We must say, we were pretty surprised to discover that most of the kids were from different countries.

In fact, when it came to guessing which team member is from where, they all quickly guessed our nationality but we found ourselves in real difficulty at the point of finding out where parents and kids were from...

This school follows a very interesting pedagogical pattern inspired by Steiner’s propositions; the kids are especially awakened even though they are very young.

They gave us the chance to discover the school from the inside and to enjoy their art.

Between Monte Carlo and Nice the road was literally sculpted into the rock, so right in front of the runners, the colourful beauty of the Mediterranean coast was showing its irresistible charms.

Another group of our runners had interesting meetings between Nice and Cannes, with the French way to prepare ice creams and with relaxed police guys.

The deep turquoise of the sea was simply magic; everybody had to jump in the water after running in such hot temperatures.

Today was actually not only the first day in France, it was also the first day for most of the team, therefore we had to train, practice and reinvent the coordination. We actually lost our runners quite a few times, but it’s part of the folklore on the run, and we never lost them for too long.

By the way, if you see one of these runners running and looking everywhere, it might be one of our guys lost in the middle of the French wonders!

Distance: 74km

Team Members:
Marjan Jauk (Slovenia), Vlado Kulisek (Slovakia), Vladimir Salnicov (Moldova), Michael Hirner (Austria), Bernadett Hammel and Agnes Bonczi (Hungary), Svetlana Gorshkova (Russia).
