The event








The race course highlights the most beautiful places in Western Paris (Eiffel Tower, Trocadero, Arc de Triomphe, Bois de Boulogne, Roland Garros, Maison de la Radio, Grand Palais, Tuileries, Pont Royal, Berges Rive Gauche…) while guaranteeing a high level of safety.

The Bands play an extremely important role in the race as they create a tremendous atmosphere both for the runners and the spectators. They provide energy and help to lift the runners’ spirits.

The organization of the start area and the 23 waves of departure launched every 3 minutes will ensure an excellent fluidity without traffic jams on the first kilometers and without congestion in the finish area!

Drink and feed stations will be provided in the 6th, 10th and 15th kilometer and in the finish area.

Our objective is to reduce the environmental impact of our event and to propose a « Clean Race ».

To help us achieve this goal, your bottles of water will have to be thrown away in the containers provided for this purpose. Targets will help you to get it right. And don’t forget that when you registered, you have agreed not to throw your rubbish on the course.

You will enjoy the Bois de Boulogne over about 4km, along the Allée de Longchamp and the Allée de la Reine Marguerite.

Leaving the Bois de Boulogne, you will follow Roland Garros along the Boulevard d’Auteuil, then, at the Porte Molitor, you will take the Boulevard Murat to go to the Porte de Saint-Cloud roundabout. This new portion will be much more rolling, with fewer turns and a short downhill to get to the banks.

Below is the information concerning the differences in height.

Then you will follow the River Seine to the Pont Royal, passing by Trocadéro, Le Grand Palais, Place de la Concorde and Les Tuileries garden.

After crossing the River Seine,  you will run along the banks up to the Quai Branly.


L’édition 2020 sera une édition très hétéroclite. Vous serez encouragés par des cornemuses, des DJ, des percussions et bien d’autres instruments encore… vaste course musicale de 20km en pays breton, bavarois, brésilien… Tous les kilomètres, une animation vous accompagnera dans vos efforts et, à l’arrivée, les pompoms vous redonneront le sourire pour passer la ligne.
