Full description
Nothing planned for the evening? Join this 10 km/6 m jog along the illuminated streets of Paris! Work out, sight-see and have a lot of fun by meeting new running mates from all over the world! The starting point of the tour will be the place where all the distances in France are measured from: the Notre-Dame Cathedral, in the very heart of Paris. From there, your running guide will lead you on a round tour, at your own pace, along some shiny landmarks of Paris, such as: Paris City Hall, the Louvre Museum, Vendôme square, the Garnier Opera house, Hôtel des Invalides, the Eiffel tower, and much more! Some quick pauses are planed for pictures and refreshments along the way. Your tour host will carry your belongings (small items only) inside his/her backpack and will have water and snacks ready for you whenever you feel like it. All you have to do is to put on some comfortable running gear and to lace up your trainers!

Meeting point

The meeting point has changed to the Saint-Michel square, which is very close to the Notre-Dame cathedral and also a central metro and train (RER) station. This has been done because of the fire that happened on April 15, the immediate surroundings are blocked to the public. Now, your running guide will be waiting for you between the Saint-Michel fountain and the exit of the metro. If you're arriving there by metro (line 4, and RER B and C), just take exit number 3, called "Fontaine Saint-Michel"). Subway stations: Saint-Michel (line 4) - Cluny-La-Sorbonne (line 10). Train (RER) stations: Saint Michel-Notre-Dame (RER B and C).
