Running seduces. There were 10,000 athletes who got up this Sunday to take part in the Strasbourg races. A 44th edition marked by radiant sunshine and record participation. In fact, for the first time, the main races of the day (half, 10km, 5km) were sold out the day before the event.

“It’s the most accessible sport in the world”

The 10 kilometers notably brought together 4008 people. On the starting line, rue de l’Université, Mathéo hopes to beat his personal best. “The most satisfying thing is the arrival because we suffer but we want to go back”. The latter registered for the race with his friend, Nathan. Both athletes love challenges and surpassing themselves. “We are alone in front of ourselves but at the same time the atmosphere is excellent around us thanks to the people who applaud”.

For others, it is indeed the atmosphere that is motivating. “I think it makes the difference compared to Sunday morning jogging where you have to motivate yourself”smiles Zélie.
