|Paris Half-Marathon 2010 – Into the starting areas looking forward to the start…|
On Sunday, March 3rd, 2013, it is the half marathon of Paris, a little more than 21 km (>13mi) for a race in the East of Paris. 40000 runners for this new edition!
A beautiful sports route and a good preparation for the next marathon of Paris which will take place on Sunday, April 7th.
A sports route but also a beautiful touristic stroll, so, of course, you will see at first and on arrival the magnificent castle of Vincennes, but even if you are in full effort, take advantage of the stroll, raise eyes and look at Paris around you…
Maybe it will make your running easier?
So don’t miss, for example:
|On your road between the 12th and the 13th kilometer, Notre-Dame at your left on the “Ile de la Cité”|
L’Hôtel de Ville
|At the 13th kilometer, before turning left, have a look to the “Mairie de Paris”, the City hall of Paris|
The tracks of the Castle of “La Bastille”
|Just before the place of the Bastille, between the 14th and the 15th kilometer, on the ground, tracks indicating the locations of towers and walls of the former Bastille castle
(if the crowd allows you to see them)
You will see many other magnificent and historic places all along the route, take advantage of it (and if you have other remarkable places that you want to share with us, say it in a comment, thanks!).
Enjoy your race!
