Reporting from Monaco, IUM professor, Moïse LOUISY-LOUIS
On March 18, 2,500 confirmed and amateur runners took over Monaco’s streets. Asphalt lovers could choose between the Riviera Classic, a 24-km run which kicked off at 9:45 and linked
Ventimiglia to Monaco via Roquebrune-Cap Martin, or the Monaco Run, a 10-km race which led runners from the port Hercule, to Fontvieille, then to the port again, to Grimaldi Street, speedway all the way to MCCC, down to the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel, and ended on the port via the Grimaldi Forum and the Japanese Garden.
As usual, IUM representatives were relaxed and had great fun. IUM students, Lin, Lacey, Tsegezab, IUM professors, Michelle, Grégory, Markus, Frédéric, Moïse and IUM friends, Sandro, Elisa, Hans, Marc, Kaveh, and especially Peace & Sport runners, Mélanie, Ana-Luz, Karine, and Hana, did very well, both individually and collectively.
In particular, we would like to congratulate Frédéric for his good performance on the 24-km race, Elisa and Sandro for having brilliantly teamed up for the relay, Grégory and Markus for having proudly stepped up and all other IUM friends for their great spirit and energy.
After Grasse, the No Finish Line, Cursa di Natale, and Monaco Run, the team looks forward to the next events (perhaps Nice’s Semi-Marathon in April, Aix-en-Provence and Menton in May). These will be opportunities to proudly wear white and red and seek again to reach the top, as Semper Ad Altum!
