Toulouse Marathon
28th October 2012


Official Result

Bob Wells  3.15.04 4th MV3

I returned to Toulouse this weekend for reunions with old friends, gastronomy and the marathon. Given my lack of training and motivation I should be well pleased with my 3:15:04 for 4th in over 60 category (MV3). I am still trying to work out how I got round comfortably on a single cup of water and 6 jelly babies.  There was definitely no need to go short of drink or food as there were very frequent well-stocked feeding stations. Also plenty of entertainment with live music every couple of kilometres, stilt walkers and supportive crowds who can read the runners' names printed on their numbers. My "Robert dit Bob" caused some confusion so there were many welcome several shouts of 'Allez Bedford'.
I highly recommend this event. A flat course finishing in the centre with some 3000 particiipants - not too many to create logistical nightmares. The Saturday night Pasta Party was good too, held on the 6th floor of new building with magnificent views towards the Pyrenees of the setting sun.
