Toulouse beat last Saturday, September 13, 2014, afternoon the record for the biggest rugby scrum in the world – record kept until now by the British with a 1200 scrum people – creating on the Place du Capitol in the center of the city a 1272 people “mêlée”. The event was part of the festival called appropriately “FestOval” the celebration of the strong rugby traditions of Toulouse.
Running in Colours
In less then 1 month on October 12, 2014 a fun 5km “race” will take place in Toulouse – event called “Color me …Rad”. The concept is very simple: after each kilometer run the participants are sprinkled with natural dyes – green for harmony, orange for optimism, blue for vitality and red for love and joy. No chronometer just the joy of running together.
At the end of the events the hundreds or maybe thousands of participants will form a … unique work of art visible on the streets of Toulouse.
Starting point is the La Ramée recreational park in Tournefeuille in the suburbs of Toulouse.
