Sunrise Run & Sightsee in Paris (light version)
6 km / 3.7 m
If you're a morning person, then join this early bird jog and see the main landmarks of Paris! You'll work out and sight-see before breakfast, having plenty of time to visit more in-depth later the places you liked the most during your running tour.
We carefully planned our starting time. Despite the early start at dawn, most of the run will happen at daylight, while Paris is still waking up and free from the crowd. You'll be able to have a clear view (and wonderful pictures!) of all the landmarks, and watch a while later a beautiful sunrise behind the Eiffel Tower, if the weather is in our favor!

STARTING POINT AND FINISHING LINE
The starting point of the tour will be the place where all the distances in France are measured from: the Notre-Dame Cathedral, in the very heart of Paris. From there, your running guide will lead you on a round tour, at your own pace, past some reference landmarks that make Paris one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world!
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!
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 to put on appropriate running gear and to lace up your trainers!
