For the 42nd edition of this legendary race, find the live and all the highlights here. Our teams, present all along the route on foot, by motorbike or by helicopter, take you for three hours live. On the program: the start of the 18,000 runners, the difficult passage of the Col de la Gineste, and above all the atmosphere despite the forecast rainy weather …
They are in the starting blocks! The 18,000 runners, gathered on Boulevard Michelet, near the Orange Vélodrome, are getting ready to start the 2021 edition of Marseille-Cassis this Sunday morning. To protect themselves from the rain, some have opted for the traditional K-way, others … for a garbage bag. Others, again, have dressed in festive accessories: multicolored skirts, or even devil horns on this Halloween day.
The starting signal will be given at 8:30 am for elite runners. Among them, sizes classified in the world top 50. The other riders will start in successive waves every 6-8 minutes. Over 20 km, these high-level athletes from all over the world, like these running enthusiasts, will run between sea and hill. Superb panoramas in perspective despite the greyness.
