the legendary race

The Pegasus is a half-marathon with a national FFA label. With almost 5,000 participants each year, it is one of Normandy's flagship events. A qualifier for the French championship, the Pegasus is one of France's leading running events.

 

The event is made mythical by the famous bridge from which it starts, the first bridge liberated by the British soldiers of the 6th Airborne. With an extremely pleasant route, an impressive density and an ideal schedule, the Pegasus is a must for running aficionados.

 

The event is gearing up for a historic 2024 edition as part of the festivities marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.
