The race used to be called the 10 km of the 9th (arrondissement of Paris). It took place without interruption from 2000 until 2016 and was resumed and renamed in 2019 as “Lions Paris 9 Run – 10km du Neuf 2019”.
This new edition, still organized by the Lions Club International in partnership with the City Hall of the 9th arrondissement, returns after the interruption related to the health crisis COVID 19. The 2020 edition was the last race before the first lockdown in France…
We are therefore very happy to be back on a superb route in the heart of Paris.
The race is always organized for a good cause, to collect funds to help the associations supported by the Lions Club and corresponding to international themes: diabetes, environment, hunger, childhood cancer, vision or disability. 100% of the funds collected during the 10KM DU NEUF – LIONS PARIS 9 RUN will be redistributed!
A beautiful route, a beautiful cause, a beautiful race!
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)?
