Runner draws GPS hunchback to honour Notre-Dame

If you liked our recent article about a runner’s GPS drawing of a weasel, here is a new one from the same runner yesterday in Paris – this time in honour of Notre-Dame.

Nicolas Verdès, 46, ran 39.8kms to pay homage to Notre-Dame with a drawing of Quasimodo holding a heart on a gargoyle.

He previously drew a map of France in Paris, as well as a map of Brittany, where he is from.
