Tanguy Le Turquais, skipper of the Imoca Lazare, in full preparations for the 2024 Vendée Globe, organized, on Sunday June 23, a half-marathon for the benefit of Lazare (an association which develops shared accommodation between the homeless and young workers) This race of 10 km took place between Lorient and Locmiquélic, crossing Port-Louis, Riantec and returning to Sainte-Catherine. On the score lists for this “Tour de la rade by Lazare”, there were 400 runners on the 21 km circuit and 300 on the 10 km loop.

15,000 euros raised

“It’s a huge success” confided Tanguy Le Turquais before the results were announced. “Runners of all ages came from all over the region. Word of mouth and networks worked well. I am lucky to have a wonderful team of around fifty volunteers around me, who are fully invested in the organization.” Delighted to have raised more than €15,000 which will make it possible to redevelop the kitchen and bathroom of a house in Lorient, in which people currently homeless will be accommodated, the skipper is delighted to have highlighted the Lazare association. “I am also very happy to have introduced Locmiquélic to many participants from elsewhere.” Arriving first in the half-marathon, in 1h 17mn and 57s, Augustin Kerhardi, 21, is used to long distances. He is also a lover of the sea and a sailing enthusiast. “My participation in this tour of the harbor was therefore obvious,” he said. In the 10 km, it was Martin Le Blévec from Ploemeur who arrived first after 32 minutes of racing, alone in the lead. Among the competitors, Clarisse Crémer admitted that with her companion (Tanguy Le Turquais) they love running. “We train together, but in the Vendée Globe, it will be every man for himself,” she admits with a broad smile.
