Vredestein will also organize three connected races of 5km, 10km and 15km for all registrants as part of the physical preparation for the 20km de Paris. A non-mandatory “appendix” allows runners to set themselves “intermediate and progressive goals”.

As for the course, it remains unchanged. For a scheduled arrival at the foot of the Eiffel Tower (7th), the start will be given at the Pont d’Aina below the Trocadero (16th). Meanwhile, the runners will head in the direction of the Arc de Triomphe, making a loop on the Bois de Boulogne, before finding themselves at the quays of the Seine, right bank and then left bank.

Last year, no less than 30,000 runners participated in the race.
