Where you can find all the events, the history, the records, the bibs, the clubs, and the colours of the champions.event n°19, the penultimate one, is the 800m.

We have here, the photo of the arrival of the previous race (!!!), the surprise of these fields: Dantigny beats a fierce Bouin of two meters...
