From Michelle Kimberley-Johnson

This year’s Nice to Cannes marathon was run in glorious sunshine, perfect conditions for producing best time. This year, Mougins School entered 4 teams, Staff Ladies, Staff Men, student girls and a mixed team.
The Staff Ladies team once again proved to be super strong, finishing in 31.12’.36’’. This team was comprised of Michelle Kimberley-Johnson, Elisabeth Ward, Steph Glyde, Karen Keeling, Lois Downes and Jo McDonnell. This was the 3rd fastest ladies team and 23rd team overall. The Staff Men’s Team had a great race with newcomer Glen Horsefall starting the course well.

Nikita Jessaibegjans (Form 13) also helped the team to a great finishing time of 3h25’56’’. This team was also comprised of Brian Hickmore, Rob Cooke, Andy Keeling and John Hooker.
The Student Girls’ Team were as reliable as ever, running fantastically with smiles on their faces all the way! They managed an excellent 4h11’53’’. Their team was comprised of Carmel Van der Weide, Eva Soutoul, Charlotte Dean, Chiara Hoppner, Darja Berga and Anastasia Vladimirova.
Our mixed teams this year took a bit of a battering beforehand with illness and injury, but thanks to Kurt and Zoë Roberts stepping in at the last minute, we managed to get a team over the line in an incredibly fast time of 3h44’30’’! An excellent result. Also running in the is team were Lara Scott, Carmen Burgues and Caren Keeling.
