MGHI and the Cannes-Nice Marathon

Why MGHI would be running a marathon ?

Well can you think of anything more metronomic than running regularly, step after step, seconds after seconds, minutes after minutes, hours after hours for 42.2 km (26.2 miles) ?

So, to be fully metronomic and why not raise a little money, we have set a MGHI team to go running the [Nice-Cannes marathon] along the French Riviera coast on the 10th of November.

9 committed runners trained hard : 3 for the first full marathon of their life (Séverine LeMenestrel, Julie Szczot and Nicolas André) and 6 runners (Laetitia Padovani, Xavier Murraciole, Marianne Vilpini, Céline Ratineau, Marc Gereys and Julien Charier) relayed for 3 others marathons. 2 of of runners could not make it on D-day for logistic reasons but otherwise all runners achieved their goal and completed 5 marathons, more than 200km proudly wearing our brand new MGHI T-shirts.
