UPDATE MARCH 2020 – THE RACE IS POSTPONED FROM MARCH 14th TO OCTOBER 3RD DUE TO COVID 19 (CORONAVIRUS)
The Eco Trail celebrates its thirteenth edition this year with success as it attracts more and more people, runners and hikers.
The Paris EcoTrail is the great Parisian Trail, Parisian because it ends in Paris for several of its races and what’s more, on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, which is the case of the 80 km Trail (80 km with a little treat for the end, more than 400 steps to climb to reach the first floor and the finish!).
The Ecotrail de Paris corresponds to several competitions, the trails 80km, 45 km, 30 km, 18 km, a new one: the 10 km (good opportunity to test the conditions of a trail for the first time), hikes and Nordic Walks. For those who are only interested in the Eiffel Tower, there is also the Eiffel Tower Vertical: this year, due to construction work, the Vertical stops at the second floor, it is still a matter of climbing the steps leading to the finish in a minimum of time … fewer steps to climb so but in fact we have to do twice the climb!
You will find all the information about these races on the EcoTrail website which is very well done.
And why not combine this competition with a sightrunning tour of the city during your stay in Paris by running with authentic Parisian runner guides (warming up some day before the competition or recovering some day after)?
