The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world, nearly 145 nationalities and 55,000 runners come to tackle the most fabled long-distance discipline in athletics. This race across Paris, taking in the Champs Elysées, the Bois de Vincennes and Boulogne, offers an incomparable backdrop, with spectacular views and landmarks all along the route.
The marathon itself combines personal challenge with the chance to discover one of the world’s great cities. The athletes will pound the pavements of the French capital’s most famous avenues and plazas, from the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, where they take the start, towards the Place de la Concorde. From the Rue de Rivoli they’ll then sweep through the Place de la Bastille. After a glimpse of greenery in the Bois de Vincennes, views of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower point the way home.
