More than 7 000 runners around Mont Saint-Michel

May 29th 2018

Four races marked a weekend which was 100% dedicated to running around Mont Saint-Michel. On Saturday the Semi d’Avranches and the Trail de l’Archange took place, and on Sunday, France’s third most visited tourist site hosted the marathon runners and duo-marathon runners in the relay race.

More than 7,000 runners in total set off in these four races comprising Run In Mont Saint-Michel, the newcomer in the Run In series which also brings runners in Marseille, Reims and Lyon together.

On Saturday, the 55 kilometres of the Trail de l’Archange which set off from Granville, boasted breathtaking scenery along the cliffs of the Pointe du Grouin Sud, along the bay on the Sentiers des Douaniers and around Mont Saint-Michel. The variety of terrains of the coastline sorely tested the competitors and the race finished majestically in the heart of the monument which is a listed UNESCO World Heritage site.

The half-marathon also set off on Saturday, but from Avranches, on a flat route which took the pack to the foot of Mont Saint-Michel, visible on the final kilometres. The half-marathon has been the most popular running format for many years and a distance which is even accessible to new enthusiasts of running events.

As for the marathon and the duo-marathon, they allowed runners to cover 25 kilometres with a view of the bay of Mont Saint-Michel, before tackling La Merveille, a magnificent landmark and the prestigious finish line. It’s no coincidence if the Marathon de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel is regularly ranked as one of the ten most beautiful marathons in the world! Over a third of the participants in the leading race ran this distance for the first time, and among them 44% were women.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

THE MARATHON DE LA BAIE DU MONT SAINT-MICHEL TAKES ON A NEW PERSPECTIVE

October 28th 2015

A great partnership!

A.S.O. has become the organiser of the Mont Saint-Michel Bay Marathon, in partnership with the Association du Marathon de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel.

From now on, the two groups will work side by side to organise the event. By sharing our know-how, we will be able to bring you a well-managed event, continuing the work that has been carried out for almost 18 years.

Our aim is to provide you with an exceptional experience on this extraordinary circuit, whose finish line lies at the foot of the majestic Mont Saint-Michel.

So far, we have made two discernible changes:

  • The ASO Challenges registration platform, which is now open for registrations for the event, and on which you will find personalised support to prepare for your race. You will have access to fitness and nutritional advice, as well as interactive training plans to help you prepare for the race depending on your level and objectives.

The ASO Challenges community module will also allow you to find your ideal training partner.

  •  A new logo and a revamped website, where you can find all the information you need.

If you have already registered for one of the races, you will receive the information needed to move your registration to ASO Challenges very soon.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, Mont Saint-Michel and its Bay are one the most attractive places in France, with about 3 millions of visitors every year. The Marathon de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel has even been ranked in the Top 10 marathons worth travelling for by Forbes magazine.

It’s the only point-to-point marathon in France that you can actually see the finish line (the Couesnon dam in front of Mont Saint-Michel) from the start. In fact, you’ll be able to spot that beautiful fortified village for the majority of the 26.2 miles. Snug against France’s northwest coastline, the course runs from Cancale in Brittany, through the mussel capital of Vivier-sur-Mer into the yachting haven that is Cherrueix and finally toward the towering fortified island village of Normandy’s Mont Saint-Michel. The relatively flat terrain makes it easy to concentrate on the vistas of the vast Bay of Mont Saint-Michel and the imposing view of the island municipality, a former monastery and hulking edifice on the shoreline.

Mont Saint-Michel becomes an island once again in 2015

October 1st 2015

« Double work of art and nature »

“Mont Saint-Michel is to France what the Great Pyramid is to Egypt. We need to preserve it from any mutilations. Mont Saint-Michel has to remain an island. We need to preserve this double work of art and nature at all costs”, the famous French author Victor Hugo wrote.

After 20 years of study and exceptional work, Mont Saint-Michel has become an island once again in 2015. It enables visitors from all over the world to properly discover or rediscover one of the most beautiful treasures of the planet.

A successful 2015 edition

September 30th 2015

8 700 participants!

There has been an upward trend of participation with a 25% of increase compared to last year’s edition. The additional races, the 10K of Saint-Malo, the Malouine and the Duo-Marathon are also very popular

« 18 years of existence, that is the majority age in France. It does not make us any younger, but it always is a great joy! », the president of the Association of the Marathon de la Baie du Mont Saint-Michel Denis Craveia said days before the 18th edition (May 30th and 31st). « Our chance is that we are in an extraordinary place ». All along, the participants have a beautiful view of the “Wonder of the Western World”, which enabled the marathon to be quoted within the most beautiful marathons in the world. “For the general public, the goal is to finish the race. The marathon is a challenge for oneself. Regarding elite marathon runners, we look at them from a far distance and see their backs”, Denis Craveia commented. The specificity of the race is that it can be run in teams of 2, and each teammate would then run half. This format is more and more popular among runners.

A popular enthusiasm

On Saturday, the day before the Marathon, are held the 10K of Saint-Malo and Malouine, in Saint-Malo. The first race is open to men and women who would like to challenge themselves with one of the most popular running distances. The Malouine was only open to women. Either running or walking, this race was for all women willing to support breast cancer research. Kids were also a part of it. About a thousand children participated in the Marathon des Loustics.
