    Marseille, France – The Marseille – Cassis International Classic, an IAAF Silver Road Race Label 2008, will celebrate its 30th edition on 26 Sunday October.

    This popular event, attracting no less than 12,000 participants on the south of France’s handsome roads along the Mediterranean Sea, will start at 9:30 am in front of the Velodrome Stadium in Marseille. The race distance, 20,308km is some 800m shorter than the usual Half-Marathon, and the runners will face the main difficulty at the mid-way with a climb of 327m long on ascending the Col de Gineste, before descending to the port of Cassis.

    The male and female race records are held by Kenyans James Kwambai and Susan Chepkemei in 59:01 and 1:08:30, respectively, and the list of former winners includes such names as Hendrik Raamala (RSA) or Berhane Adere (ETH).
