If you are running a marathon for the first time, you will enjoy an extremely pleasant route, incorporating the historical monuments of the city centre which are now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and an adventure into the towns surrounding Reims.
No matter what you have read, nothing can prepare you for that first skyward glimpse of Reims’ gargantuan Gothic cathedral. Rising golden and imperious above the city, the cathedral is where, over the course of a millennium (816 to 1825), some 34 sovereigns – among them two dozen kings – began their reigns.
Meticulously restored after WWI and again following WWII, Reims is endowed with handsome pedestrian boulevards, Roman remains, art-deco cafes and a flourishing fine-dining scene that counts among it four Michelin-starred restaurants. Along with Épernay, it is the most important centre of Champagne production, and a fine base for exploring the Montagne de Reims Champagne Route.
Running the first kilometers at the heart of the historic city center, going through the famous vineyard of Champagne and the typical regional villages until reaching the wonderful Parc de Champagne, the route will offer you a splendid environment to achieve this challenge.
