Half Marathon in St Hilaire de Riez

In 2018 Michael and Alan from the Forest of Dean Athletics Club, travelled to St Hilaire to compete in their half-marathon. The temperatures were close to 30'C so it was a grueling run through the pine trees alongside the beach. However, both completed the half-marathon. 

Petanque Matches

The Angus Buchanan Petanque Club and teams from St Hilaire de Riez have played matches. In 2019 the Coleford team were well beaten by a St Hilaire team that included international players.
