Rations and prohibited equipment
Before they can go and rest up for tomorrow’s big day, the Gazelles must collect their food rations. The menu includes salads, soups, tea, shepherd’s pie and nougat… A treat for the participants who will be expending plenty of energy over the next two weeks. At another table, organizers check for prohibited items and equipment because, as specified in the sporting regulations, the Gazelles are not allowed to have mobile phones, binoculars or any devices (e.g. camera) with GPS features in their possession during the competition.
Our Gazelles are finally ready for the ceremonial start, Friday March 16 at 3 p.m. on the famous Promenade des Anglais, Nice, which is hosting the event for the fifth consecutive year.
