Organiser's Description

We can’t wait to see you again in the streets of Paris for an Autumn Marathon! We’ve decided to shift the date to maximise the chances of running together.

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. Nearly 145 nationalities and 60,000 runners come to tackle the most fabled long-distance discipline in athletics.

Athletes will pound the pavements of the French capital's famous avenues and plazas. From the start at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, this race across Paris offers an incomparable backdrop, with spectacular views and landmarks all along the route. taking in the Champs Elysées, the Bois de Vincennes and Boulogne, and views of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower will point the way home. This marathon combines personal challenge with the chance to discover one of the World's great cities.

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!!
