RunFun Travel is pleased to present this unrivalled marathon experience. The Schneider Electric Paris Marathon is one of the most prestigious marathons in the world, with over 40,000 runners each year. The course is essentially a sightseeing tour of the city; starting on the Champs Elysees and running down the wide Boulevard to Place de laConcorde, past the Louvre and out to the east of the city. It then joins the banks of the River Seine and returns past Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower on the way to the finish at the Arc de Triomphe on Avenue Foch.
If you'd like to sample the excitement, watch the video below from the 2017 event. Then contact us and reserve your place in this incomparable marathon in the most visited city in the world! Once you watch the video there's no way you'll want to miss out on coming to Paris with us in 2018! In terms of showcasing a city there is none better than the Paris Marathon - it takes in every major attraction in the city.... the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Bois du Boulogne, Notre-Dame, Musee d'Orsay, the Bastille. And then there is the start line, where tens of thousands of runners assemble on the Av. Des Champs-Elysees with the Arc de Triumphe rising magnificently behind them. It is an extraordinary sight.
Our accommodation choice is in close proximity of the start and finish area, being a few minutes walk to the start on the Champs Elysees and even closer to the finish, on Avenue Foch.
Paris in the springtime is a perfect destination. Make it yours in 2018!
Please note there is a cut-off time of 5hrs 40mins (from the last start).
All runners must be at least 20 years old by 31 December the preceding year.
