OUR Mipim spies have brought us more news from the promenades of Cannes. Apparently attendees at the international property gala are desperate to avoid being photographed with a drink in their hands (alcoholic – we’re sure Evian is fine) as they don’t want to be accused of being on a jolly. We’ve heard that at one particular party on Tuesday night, the photographers were told to only photograph people from the shoulders up, to avoid the drinks in their hands. The Capitalist has also gotten wind that when charity cyclists, who had pedalled all the way from London, arrived in Cannes, they had to slow down ahead of the finish line because Boris Johnson was running late to meet them. The sighs of displeasure were reportedly audible.
THE SUN has been gracing us with its presence over the past few days and it might just be time to put that to good use, grab your running shoes and start jogging – entries are open for the 2014 Standard Chartered Great City Race. You’ve got plenty of time to work on your stamina and technique, it’s on 10 July but the 5k race does tend to be a sell-out. At the moment entries are restricted to those who’ve taken part in the City dash before, but the team are encouraging first timers to register their interest on the website www.cityrace.co.uk. £10 from every runners’ fee will go to Seeing Is Believing. Team City A.M. are warming up as we speak.
