This year, the “10KM DE L’HEXAGONE”* is much more than a race… it’s a whole summer and festive weekend reserved for “Hexagoners” on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June at the “Hippodrome d’Auteuil”!
In addition to the 10km and 5km “family walk and run” events, the 10KM DE L’HEXAGONE offers you this year:
- a 10 km duo
- a race for the Little Hexagoners (children’s race / free)
- Pilates and Yoga Courses (free)
- and of course, and always, a free daycare for the little ones!
Like the previous years, in Paris, the race starts and ends at the splendid hippodrome of Auteuil, precisely on the athletic track which is in the middle of the horses race field (for information, it is a track open to the public when there are no equestrian races, a beautiful 400 m to make its intervals series).
It’s always a great pleasure to finish a race by going around a stadium! Propice to the final sprint which makes us gain a few seconds and pass under the threshold of the objective!
* “Hexagone” means the continental part of France, reminding that its geographical shape resembles an almost regular hexagon (3 land sides and 3 sea sides). By extension, “Hexagone” is often used to designate France itself.
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)? Enjoy an original private tour, tailor-made for you:
