Teams must be 5 people, with 1 vehicle and a minimum of 2 runners who will also act as drivers.
You will be warmly welcomed into our basecamp each evening. A home away from home where you can catch up with your team and other runners, enjoy a hot meal, shower and settle into your very own tent.
The basecamp each evening will have space to relax, eat and socialise and will become a highlight of your trip.
Each team will need to have their own team vehicle with a minimum of two drivers. This is your means of transport for the 4 non-runners between the checkpoints during each leg and way to get home after you have Run2Paris. We will need your registration plate details and proof of insurance and breakdown cover ahead of the event.
A kit wagon will be available to transport any bulky items between basecamps each day. A driver pack will be sent out that will show you all the details about routes, changeover points, parking and local cafes and bakeries for some lunch and snacks- remember breakfast and dinner are included at basecamp.
The vehicle will be booked onto a return Ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe and we will be in touch with more details in due course. Everyone travels across to Dieppe on the same ferry on Friday morning ahead of the second days running. Additional vehicles are not included in the registration fee.
Each team will be provided with a live tracking device and access to our route map. We require runners to download the RunGo App and we will send across the running route for you to download. RunGo acts as a SatNav for runners and will provide turn by turn directions for each runner – a headphone is recommended.
Team mates, friends and family will be able to follow runners progress on the live tracking device and this will act as your baton to pass between teammate at the changeover points and handed into basecamp HQ each evening for recharging.
The route will cover various terrains across the 4 days. Mainly road running but there are also large sections on trails and some off road. There will be road crossings, running through towns and cities and sections where you will be running on the road itself.
The route has been meticulously planned for your safety and enjoyment but please be a conscientious runner, aware of your surroundings and run safe at all times.
What better way to finish off each day in basecamp than with a delicious hot meal and what better way to encourage you out of your tent than a hearty breakfast? Run2Paris will provide exceptional food from the evening meal at the end of day 1 to a final breakfast boost ahead of day 4. Of course just let us know of any dietary requirement you have and we will do our best to accommodate.
During each day the team can explore the local cafes and bakeries along the route and sample the delicious local cuisine at their own pace. We will provide a drivers pack that will give you some options. What better way to mix up convenience and deliciousness?
- Day 1 – Dinner only
- Day 2 – Breakfast and Dinner

With so much included in your registration fee there is very little you need to worry about. Your final kit list will be circulated along with your participant pack closer to the event but will include Running gear – we aren’t going to tell you which shoes to wear but remember its running outside for 4 days, its probably going to be wet at some point, hot and sunny at another and freezing cold too. Be prepared. Basecamp kit – You can throw this into the kit wagon each morning and it will be waiting for you when the team arrives. Suggested items Roll mat, sleeping bag, change of clothes, warm layers
Your place in Run2Paris will raise vital funds to support our two Charity Partners, Parkinson’s UK and SSAFA - The Armed Forces Charity. Your fundraising target is just £400 per person that is less than most major half marathons and so achievable for such an epic challenge.
The money you raise will be administered through the Run2Paris Foundation which will split the final total 50/50 with the two benefiting charities. We will support you all of the way and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch
