La Ronde des Plages - the Children

The Menton Marathon Club recently organised a 10 kilometre run - La Ronde des Plages.

Before we get on to the big boys' run, first: the children's races. There was a 1.5 kilometre run for the 6 - 10 year olds and then a 3 km run for the 11 to 15 year olds.

In the main photo, they've finished the run and are queuing to get their medals. Not all are happy with their efforts though, as you see by the expression on the boy in the black tee-shirt.

In the smaller photo, a father rubs oil into his daughter's legs and in the last photo, they are off!


  1. A Kiddie Marathon...what fun! The boy in the black shirt looks exhausted, but the girl in pink in front of him looks fresh as a daisy. You go, girl!!

  2. must have been fun and frolic! great!

    Have started a new meme Pet Pride where you can display your or your friends' pets every week beginning every Sunday! Do join in and share your pet pride with the world!

  3. Great set of photos, the first one is really something special.

    I never heard of a child's marathon. It looks like it was a huge success.

  5. I love that first shot, too. Such expressive faces and postures. And they all have rough and tumble knees.

  6. #29 is going to win. he has the look.

  7. Rather them than me!
