Paris Marathon 2021


What a splendid start! The avenue des Champs Elysées to reach the place de la Concorde after the 1st km

No Paris Marathon in 2020 because of the health crisis… what a pleasure to see it again in autumn 2021! In October, the weather should not be too hot, which can happen in April, the month when the Paris Marathon is usually run (by the way, registrations for the April 2022 Paris Marathon are now open!)

It remains the marathon of the year! At least for me, a passionate Parisian 😉. This will be my 24th Paris Marathon, run continuously since 1996.

We will find the route of the 2019 Paris Marathon which had been given a change making it even more beautiful, Place Vendôme and Opéra Garnier! Small funny difference, the end of the course before the finish goes through the Porte Dauphine as usual, but bypassing it on the left ☺

Old route, new route, either way, it will be a magnificent route, if only for the start at the Champs Elysées which is magical. A splendid stroll guaranteed.

Few difficulties at the Paris Marathon

Few difficulties in the Paris Marathon, some cobbled sections like here, some small tunnels to climb and some false flats but overall, it is an easy marathon (compared to New York for example)
