Très chic!

What could be more spectacular and stylish than running a half marathon in Paris?

Spectators line the Parisian streets to cheer you on with many musical events along the way. This beautiful course is relatively flat, allowing a significant number of runners to beat their personal bests.

Traditionally taking place in the East of Paris, runners make their way along the Avenues of the Bois de Vincennes and the boulevards and streets of the 12th arrondissement before heading into central Paris, looping around Hôtel de Ville city hall. The route is simply stunning all the way. You can find out more on the organiser's website.

Please note that for this event you will need to provide a medical certificate.
