Run the Lights
∾ 6-10 km / 4-6.2 m
Paris reveals itself in all its splendor at night! In this experience, we’re going to jog along a 6-10 km (4-6 m) route passing by illuminated streets, bridges and monuments that make Paris deserve the title of City of Lights.
The starting point of the tour will be 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 shiny landmarks of Paris, such as Paris City Hall, the Notre Dame cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Concorde square, the Champs-Elysées avenue, the Eiffel tower, and much more!
Some quick pauses are planned for pictures and refreshments along the way. Your running tour host will carry your belongings (small items only) inside his/her backpack and will have water and snacks ready for you whenever you feel like it. All you have to do is to put on appropriate running gear and to lace up your trainers!
STARTING POINT AND FINISHING LINE
Your running guide will be waiting for you at the Saint-Michel square, between the Saint-Michel fountain and the entry to the metro station. If you're arriving there by metro (line 4, and RER B and C), just take exit number 3, called "Fontaine Saint-Michel".
If you’re taking the 10 km /6 m route, the starting and finishing lines will be the same: the Saint-Michel square. For the ones running half the route, the finishing line will be Trocadero square.
In only 2 hours you’ll be able to see and learn about the main landmarks of Paris, such as:
✨ Notre-Dame cathedral
✨ Paris City Hall
✨ Pont Neuf
✨ Louvre Museum
✨ Tuileries Garden
✨ Concorde square
✨ Champs-Elysées avenue
