As the 2018 edition has been cancelled, the information presented here corresponds to the 2017 edition (photos, results, etc.)
After being located three years in flat terrain (Parc de la Villette), the Valentine’s Day races returned to “Les Buttes Chaumont”.
2.5 km made in five loops of the splendid and hilly Parc des Buttes Chaumont, downhill, uphill, downhill, uphill, downhill, five times!
Imagine the slopes of the Chaumont Buttes during a cold and snowy episode. Well, it’s those snowy and icy slopes that we ran (or climbed) in February 2010, during a harsh winter. It was necessary to watch the placement of our strides…
Two events are organized:
– A 5 km couple (male-female, female-female and male-male categories). The rule is very simple: couples leave at the same time and must arrive at the same time too. Each couple therefore travels 2 loops of 2.5 km.
– A 10 km solo race (male and female categories), consisting of 4 loops of 2.5 km each.
Very good atmosphere for this race organized by the Paris Front Runners. Diversity and warmth, despite the cold of February!
