The Paris half-marathon.
There is another half-marathon in Paris, the more “intimate” half-marathon of Vincennes, which takes place in the Bois de Vincennes, can be considered as a half-marathon of Paris, the Bois de Vincennes belonging to Paris!
Another great half-marathon also exists, very close by, the half-marathon of Boulogne but it is not Parisian, because even if a few kilometers are done in the Bois de Boulogne (also belonging to Paris), it is the city of Boulogne that welcomes and organizes it.
The Half Marathon of Paris is the first major international race of the year in Paris, before the Marathon de Paris.
He is considered to be the half-marathon to prepare for the Paris marathon. This year, the half-marathon is five weeks away from the marathon. To your training plans!
As for several years now, the start and finish are in the Bois de Vincennes. The race goes and joins the heart of Paris passing by the river Seine, reaches the Hôtel de Ville and returns again by the Seine to rejoin the Bois de Vincennes and to end with some uphill false flats at the finish near the starting point. A beautiful loop!
Who remembers the old courses that started at “Stade Charléty” and ended up in the stadium on the track? The end reserved some beautiful climbs… Find the 1998 edition below, 20 years ago…
