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.
us too, and 2h10 is way better than even my ambition, which is 2h30. you (& yr daughter) might also want to come in for this http://www.corrida-noel-issy.com (there is a link for a briefer english description)
