The Paris Marathon - a 42,195 km challenge

In April, you’ll discover events with a common thread as you put on your running gear to take part in the 10th Paris Marathon. The Sezz Paris, a luxury hotel just a stone's throw from the Eiffel Tower, suggests you glean a few “walking tips” from the running show before the main event. Book your room soon to fully enjoy your weekend of sport.


Running for Runners

The Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre will host France’s biggest running show from 6th to 8th April, 2017.  For 19 years, this has been a place for meetings and exchanges, an event where dedicated runners and interested beginners can immerse themselves in a universe dedicated to the pleasure of running and the passion for well-being. This year, you’ll have the opportunity to be coached by some of the sport’s greatest experts and health specialists such as Murielle Hurtis, Bob Tahri, Hélène Duval and Christophe Ruelle. You will also be able to test the unique new 80-metre running track and discover the latest collections from the best running brands though a programme of shows over the course of the fair.


Try the Paris Marathon

The 40th edition of the Paris Marathon de Paris takes place in the wake of the show on Sunday, April 9th, 2017. This famous race was inaugurated in 1976, and is among the five great international marathons. It brings together amateur and experienced runners who cover (or attempt to cover) a 42,195 km course through some of the capital’s most beautiful places. The race starts in the Avenue des Champs Elysées, passes by the rue de Rivoli, the Hôtel de Ville, the Place de la Bastille, and emblematic landmarks like the Bastille, the Louvre, the Quai de la Seine, and the Eiffel Tower. The circuit also loops around the Bois de Vincennes before hooking towards the Bois de Boulogne prior to the final stretch on Avenue Foch. If you would like to participate in the marathon, be sure to register online at the A.S.O. Challenges platform - www.asochallenges.com.
