Off to a run­ning start

Living France - - What’s New -

My run­ning rou­tine has fallen a lit­tle by the way­side re­cently; a win­ter of over­sized jumpers and cosy nights in watch­ing Net­flix proved much more tempt­ing than the tread­mill. But if there’s one prospect that will get me back into train­ing, it’s surely a run in my favourite city, Paris. Taking place on 8 April, the Marathon de Paris starts at the Arc de Tri­om­phe and takes run­ners past the city’s most iconic sites in­clud­ing Place de la Bastille, NotreDame and the Eif­fel Tower. If that’s not enough to keep me mo­ti­vated, I’m sure the crowd of 57,000 run­ners (23,000 travel to the cap­i­tal es­pe­cially) will keep me go­ing. And of course, there’s al­ways the cool-down stroll around Paris’s Sun­day mar­kets and the glass of wine at the end. Reg­is­tra­tion costs €199. schnei­der­elec­tric­paris­marathon.com
