Finally, we will be back to our big races, which have been postponed until now because of the COVID pandemic. The first of these major Parisian races is the Paris Half Marathon.
So these are new conditions that we are encountering. Usually, before the health crisis, the race took place at the beginning of March, at the end of winter, where sometimes we had snow at the start… This time, it is the end of summer, when the heat may still be present… we shall see.
The course is also different, starting at Pont de Sully and boulevard Henri IV and finishing at Place de la Bastille, with still a good portion in the Bois de Vincennes.
Of course, still in the particular circumstances of the pandemic, you will need a valid COVID certificate to participate in the event.
So, first half-marathon, chase for the distance record, preparation for the Paris Marathon which takes place 6 weeks later (following the various postponements), pleasant moment of running with friends, whatever, GOOD HALF!
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)?
