The Monaco Herculis DL sponsored a 10k road race on March 12. Included in the 10k is a fun relay, 3k leg and 7k leg. Note the picture above of IAAF president Seb Coe with Marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe. Remember, the Herculis Monaco DL will be held July 21, 2017.

Today during the Monaco Run, the spectators gathered around the course had the chance to watch both Lord Sebastian Coe and Paula Radcliffe running the Herculis Relay.

Indeed, after the IAAF President ran his leg of 3km, he passed on the relay to the women World Record Marathon holder which ran her leg of 7km to bring home the team to the third position with a time of 38'07 over 10km.

Started in 2011, Monaco Run is a road race event taking place in Monaco where the runners could test themselves within an official 10km, a Classic along the French Riviera starting in Ventimiglia to finish in Monaco, and a relay of 3+7km which was this year sponsored by the prestigious meeting of the Diamond League, Herculis Monaco (which will be held on July 21st in 2017).

Ce matin lors du Monaco Run, les spectateurs se sont rassemblés autour du port de Monaco pour avoir la chance de regarder Paula Radcliffe and Lord Sebastian Coe "passer le témoin" au Herculis Relay.
En effet, après que le président de l'IAAF ait couru les 3 premiers kilomètres, il passa le relais à l'actuelle détentrice du record du Monde du Marathon Paula Radcliffe qui a parcourus les 7 autres kilomètres. Pour l'anecdote, ils terminent 3ème de cette course en bouclant les 10km en 38'07.

Créé en 2011, le Monaco Run est une course sur route qui a lieu tous les ans à Monaco et permet aux coureurs de participer à un 10km officiel, à une Classic le long des Riviera entre Vintimille et Monaco ou à un relais de 3+7km qui fût cette année sponsorisé par le prestigieux meeting de la Diamond League, Herculis Monaco.
