Paris Marathon

Arc de Triomphe

Paris

Sun 2nd April 2023

Organiser's Description

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris offers a unique opportunity to make the city yours by participating in one of the most prestigious races over the legendary 42.195 km distance.

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world, as much for the size of its field as the performances of its runners. Each finisher comes home with incredible memories.

Tens of thousands of 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 Run experience fair at Porte de Versailles, taking place three days before the marathon, is also an occasion not to be missed, many professionals from the running world.

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 Opéra Garnier, 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.

Every year, this unique and spectacular setting attracts more and more entrants.

So, come and join us at the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris.

Always a pleasure to run in Paris. It was my 4th time, but the first after a break of 4 years. They had clearly taken on board feedback from previous years and despite increasing the number of entries, I found it entirely manageable as they planned the staggered starts really well, and the route had changed to avoid the worst bottlenecks. The best thing was the number of toilets available on the course - MUCH better. The only downsides were that some of the refreshment stations were running very low by the time I passed through them, and the photos were disappointing - no landmarks in the background so I could have been running anywhere. Obviously it was very sad to know we were the last to run past the Notre Dame before the fire. However, I can't help myself, I have already registered for next year, and the breakfast run on the Saturday which I highly recommend - two opportunities to run round Paris in one weekend, and 2 extra t shirts!!
