Paris Marathon: Mile 5

March 20, 2010
Mile 5 of the Paris Marathon 2010

Just down the road from the Fresh Prince, you're soon out on to another decent-sized road

Another ornate roundabout to dart round here. If the wind is blowing in the right direction, some runners are likely to get a light dusting of cooling spray. This is either a good and refreshing thing, or a likely cause of uncomfortable chaffing in the later stages of the race. Keep a wide or narrow berth, depending on your particular perspective on this conundrum.

It should be noted that if you’re planning to run the shortest distance you can (i.e. not unnecessarily extending your marathon by taking an inefficient course), the apex of the roundabouts so far is on the inside.
