Paris Marathon: Run along the French capital's most famous avenues and plazas in the amazing Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris

Paris Marathon

When: 8 April 2018
Where: Paris, France
 
About: The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world and offers a unique opportunity to make the city yours, by taking part in one of the most prestigious races over the legendary 42.195km distance. 
 
In April, 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. Nearly 145 nationalities and 57,000 runners take it on as a personal challenge with the chance to discover one of the world's great cities.
 
Runners 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 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.
