An nice Cornish translation here of Me zo ganet e kreiz ar mor (I was born within the sea / among the waves) original written by Jean-Pierre Calloc’h

I must admit that it’s sad to see that there are no conversations in either Breton or Cornish between Brittany and Cornwall.
From 24th to 31th May, from Morlaix to Glomel, 1500 km in Brittany !
The Redadeg, launched in 2008, is a relay race which takes place every two years.
To back the projects in support of the Breton language the kilometres are sold and the profits are redistributed. These new initiatives are selected based on application, they are very diverse and can relate to teaching, leisure, media, sport or culture but they all promote the use of Breton in social and family life. The race goes through the 5 Breton departments over 1500kms and crosses more than 300 municipalities.
(consult the route map and the municipalities crossed by clicking on Route)
The Redadeg defends the idea « Brezhoneg ha plijadur » ! « Breton language and pleasure » ! You can run with your family, friends or colleagues, in disguise, with music, follow the race on foot, or on roller-blades, in pushchairs or on bikes….organise some entertainment or take advantage of the local festivities, concerts, theatre, stands, breakfasts….organised according to the time and place of the race passing. The main idea is to take part, to be seen, to have fun and it’s also the opportunity to hear, to use and to make Breton be heard!
For the start of the 4th edition in 2014, the race will leave from Morlaix on Saturday 24th May and arrive in Glomel on Saturday 31st May in the middle of the International Festival of Clarinettes, Gouel an Dreujenn Gaol.
The Redadeg is an event which is uniting, sporting, cultural, popular and festive all at the same time.
The Redadeg is an event with a strong media (in Brittany and elsewhere), economic (direct and indirect) and cultural, impact.
This is one Cornishman with a dream. Imagine one day the Redadeg symbolically starting in Cornwall before crossing the sea, as once did the Breton language, to continue its route in Breizh.
