In spring, strange signs appear on the Parisian road, blue lines accompanied by indications which seem to be coded: “KM1”, “KM2”, “KM3”, etc.
These are the kilometric marks of the Paris marathon! In other places, all the miles are indicated too.
On the photo above, the first kilometer. Magic kilometer going down the Champs-Elysées. Imagine, you are in the middle of the road of one of the most beautiful avenues and you are running applauded by the crowd!
Take care, in spite of the enthusiasm, don’t lose your head. If it seems to be easy, it is because you are running downhill. keep your energy.
One kilometer earlier, the start, in the middle of the Champs-Elysées. The mark is already present:
