WHERE TO RUN IN PARIS.

You are a runner and you are about to visit Paris but you can’t stop wondering where you can run in Paris.

No problem! Paris is a city where everyone runs everywhere.

When you see all these people running you really can’t wait to wear your running shoes and hit the road!

Choose a hotel in the Latin Quarter: it’s the perfect place where you can start your run in Paris.

RUN AT THE LUXEMBOURG GARDENS.

The Luxembourg Gardens is a gorgeous park for your running.

The perimeter is only 2 km but you can take a few laps and run on different paths all the time.

10K RUN IN PARIS.

If you are in love with the 10k runs like I am you can do the running track I did.

By following this path you can see the highlights of the city in the most fun way ever: running.

Running back and forth to wait for the green light to cross the street can be a little annoying but I guarantee you that this route is absolutely awesome!

If you can, try not to worry about the timing. Just enjoy running in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Are you ready? Let’s go!

Start your run from Pont au Double, the bridge that links the Left Bank of the Seine to Ile de la Cité.

Pass by the Notre-Dame Cathedral and get to the Right Bank by crossing the Pont d’Arcole and turn left.

Run on the riverside for about 800 metres and turn right to Rue de l’Amiral de Coligny and take the first street on the left. You will be in front of the Louvre.

Go through the museum and the Glass Pyramid and run across the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries.

Once you exit the park you are in Place de la Concorde. Watch out for the cars and the roundabound and run towards Champs-Élysées.

Take a deep breathe! It’s a 2km uphill road from here to the Arc de Triomphe! But it’s kind of poethic to end the climb at the arch that celebrates the triumph!

Turn around, we are finally going down the hill! Turn right to Avenue Winston Churchill and cross the most beautiful bridge in Paris: Pont Alexandre III. Look up! You can see now the Tour Eiffel from the distance!

You are back on the Left Bank of the Seine. Turn left and run run run along the river until you’re out of breathe!

You made it! Now go get a Nutella Crêpe! You earned it!
