In pictures, in videos: return to Montpellier Reine, with 9,400 participants and a million euros reached

On this Sunday, May 26, Mother’s Day, the streets of Montpellier will see thousands of people walking by in blue shirts, most of which symbolize the fight against breast cancer.

For its 15th anniversary, the traditional Montpellier Reine race is still an event. Almost 10,000 participants run – or walk – for a good cause on a 4.8 km course through the streets of the city centre, departing from Peyrou at 11 a.m.

All profits will be donated to breast cancer prevention, screening and research. And this year, the organizers hope to cross the million euros collected since the creation of the event.

Good mood required

This festive and colorful race is intended for a good cause… You can come dressed up or not, before you put on the jersey – this year in blue – and cover the route together in a good mood.

Among the participants
