mineral water just means bottled water. they appear to mean plain sugar cubes (which my grandfather taught me to eat as a small child).
The French says

• 120 000 bouteilles d'eau
• 25 000 gobelets de boisson énergétique (glasses of energy drinks)
• 7 100 kg d'oranges
• 3 000 kg de banane
• 1 100 kg de pommes
• 148 kg de raisins secs
• 220 kg de sucre
• 10 000 éponges (évolution possible en fonction de la météo). -- sponges

you think they can get 30 000 people off in 20 minutes? I don't think they'll sweep quite that fast though (i hope), especially since the last several k are inside a park.

I saw the timing tables on the website but I don't see where it says those are anything more than guides. The site explicitly says the last finisher is at 12:50 so, assuming 20 minutes to get all the waves off, that leaves time for a 2:30 HM.

Looks like fun! Though it's hard to know how to interpret stuff like this:

"Every 5km, you will find mineral water, dry fruits, fresh fruits and sugar."

Plain sugar?! Mineral water?! I can only imagine they had a non-runner do the translation. Might be a good idea to double check. Or carry your own - for me, 5K intervals are too long for water stops.

Congrats ladies! As a very slow runner the 2:10 to 2:30 seems so out of reach for me so am cheering you and you speedy feet =)

Nope! Not me! I picked the last possible 2:10 + expected time, which is faster than I've ever done a HM.

I just registered for the Paris semi-marathon this morning. I'm actually training for the full in April and figured to use this as one of my training runs.
