HISTORIC BEACH

The idea of organizing a beach race in France raised in the minds of 3 enthusiasts following their participation in the legendary race “The Race of Gentlemen“ organized in the USA. They soon imagined themselves having the same experience on a French beach… and moreover in Normandy, on beaches that have marked history. Their communicative passion, their desire and tenacity to take up this challenge of organizing such an event, today makes the Normandy Beach Race the awaited event in France and internationally.
