Caen is a city in the north of France, capital of Normandy and the historical region of Calvados.
Personally I love it: it’s rainy for many months a year but, for those times I’ve been there, I always found good weather. The days, in the warm months between the equinoxes, are very long, the climate is mild and perfect for running. A note: the sun in the winter rises at about 09:00am: hard to substain for people coming from south of europe
Here it is not a problem to get up early in the morning to get a 10-12km.
On 2018 May 16th I ran an enchanting 10km here. Wake up at 5:55 am and via
I never do quality on these days, but only easy runs at around 5-5:10 ‘/km.
Usually i make some intervention on PSA plant in the nearby, staying overnight in the B Hôtel Caen Est. My runs are usually in the wide roads in the industrial area.
