Why do it If you’ve always wanted to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, why not do it on the run in this infamous heartland of all things chic? The route is designed to take you on a ‘visite touristique’ of the town and its peninsula, with glimpses of the villas inhabited by the stars of film, radio and tabloid. The course rolls up and down between the town, its beaches and the surrounding countryside. Stands will be at the finish, providing opportunities to taste some of the local produce, including the famous Tropezian Tart.
