Join Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris
A truly unique way of exploring the city of love is by running the Paris Marathon. It is a once-a-year chance to run through streets that are normally dominated by cars. The course of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris will take you on a sightseeing tour showcasing some of the most famous sights. Starting at Avenue des Champs-Élysées you will pass by iconic landmarks like Opéra Garnier or the Eiffel Tower and finish with the Arc de Triomphe in the backdrop.
This marathon in Paris is one of the biggest races in Europe with over 57000 runners from over 140 countries taking part annually.
Course HighlightsThe race starts on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées going downhill to circle round the Place de la Concorde before turning right onto Rue de Rivoli. The route passes the Louvre, then goes round the Place de la Bastille, and down Boulevard Soult to the Bois de Vincennes. A long loop of the Bois de Vincennes returns the route into the heart of Paris. The halfway point is reached at Rue de Charenton. The route now follows the course of the Seine, passing Île de la Cité and going under the Pont Neuf, then a series of tunnels. There is a large drinks station and foot massage at Trocadéro, opposite the Eiffel Tower. The route continues along the Seine, before branching off east to eventually pass though Bois de Boulogne, emerging for the final 200 metres and the finish on the Avenue Foch.
