The Paris Marathon takes place in the 'City of Love' - Paris, France. It has been taking place since 1976.

In 2019 the race had nearly 50,000 participants making it one of the biggest marathons in the world. That said, it is not one of the 'marathon majors' (although it does still hold an IAAF Gold Label rating).

The race starts on Les Champs Elysées and takes you through the heart of the city and past many famous landmarks (including the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower).

It attracts over 23,000 international runners of 145 different nationalities so if you are considering travelling, you will be in good company !

Paris as a city needs no introduction. Take your partner and make the marathon weekend part of a romantic getaway? Enjoy fantastic food, art, and fashion in this mesmerising city.
