⭐️“This was hands down the best tour of a city I’ve ever experienced. I much prefer to hit the ground running when visiting a new city (pun totally intended). Not only did this tour allow me to do just that, but also provided personal photography, historical and cultural information on key points and I didn’t have to worry about carrying my own water or refreshment. I was even offered a coat (in my size) for the rain. They think of everything and take care to ensure you have a great run. Hamidou was an excellent guide and made sure he got some great shots! The icing on the cake, for me, was the relive video of the route! I absolutely recommend RunRun tours as a unique way to see Paris & will definitely be booking them the next time I visit.” (Alecia, United States, November 2018).⭐️
. . .
We’ll be chasing the sunrise on a gentle run (your pace), plunging you into an unexpectedly empty Paris. At this time of the day, most people are still sleeping and the rising sun colours the magnificent monuments and buildings with nuances of pink and gold. This is Paris as you’ve probably never seen before!
We’ve carefully planned every step of this running tour for you to learn inside stories and fun facts, have a great time and work out before breakfast. You don’t have to lift a finger: only to move your legs!
STARTING POINT AND FINISHING LINE
If you’re taking the 10 K / 6 m route, the starting and finishing lines will be the same: the Saint-Michel square. For the ones running half the route (light version, 6 km / 3 m), the finishing line will be Trocadero square.
In around 2 hours (depending on your running pace), you’ll be able to see and to learn about the most famous places and landmarks of Paris, such as: the Notre-Dame Cathedral; the Seine river, with its fairy-tale palaces and castles, bridges and gardens; the Louvre Museum; the Tuileries garden; the Concorde square; the Champs-Elysées avenue; the Eiffel Tower; the Hotel des Invalides; the d’Orsay Museum; and much more!
