Support Us : Paris Marathon

Date: TBC 2020

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris offers a unique occasion to make the city yours by participating in one of the most prestigious races on the legendary 42.195 km distance.

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world, as much for the size of its pack as the performances of its runners. Each finisher comes home with incredible memories. Nearly 140 nationalities and 50,000 runners come to confront the most legendary distance in athletics. In April, this crossing of Paris, the Champs ElysÃes at Foch Avenue, the Vincennes and Boulogne Woods, offers incomparable scenery highlighted by shows along the way, each one more popular than the next.

We have a number of places available in this fantastic event.  All we ask is that you pay a non-refundable registration fee of £30 and pledge to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship.

For more information please visit the official website.
