The starting point of the tour will be the Saint-Michel square, in the very heart of Paris. From there, your running guide will lead you on a round tour, at your own pace, past some classic landmarks of Paris, but especially past some hidden secrets that you'd probably never know without our expert guidance acquired by years of running in every corner of the City of Lights!
For the ones running half the route (8 km / 5 m), the finishing line will be the Abesses metro station, located right after the Sacre-Coeur basilica.

In around 2 hours (depending on your running pace) you’ll be able to see and to learn about some classic and some less touristy places and landmarks of Paris, such as: the Notre-Dame cathedral; Louvre Museum; Royal Palace garden; Vendôme square; Garnier Opera house; covert passageways; Sacré-Coeur basilica; Moulin Rouge and Lapin Agile cabarets; and much more hidden sites and stories of Paris!

Some quick stops are planned for pictures and refreshments along the way. Your tour host will carry your belongings (small items only) inside their backpack and will have water and snacks ready for you whenever you feel like it. All you have to do is to is put on appropriate running gear and to lace up your trainers!
