  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    The event village was chaotic as well as the start. Getting into the pens was a nightmare and some people jumped over the fences.We only left 30 minutes after the start time and when it's 5° it's not amazing to be waiting for that long. Once you start going though, the atmosphere was amazing, the public was encouraging us all the way to the finish and running in Paris allows you to sed some amazing monuments and sites.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Paris Marathon was one of the worst marathon for an international marathon. The marathon does not come worth the value of this race. It looks like someone woke up and decides to organize a marathon.
  • Did the Marathon in 2014

    The start of this marathon is epic - there is a really good vibe and running down the Champs Elysees is pretty special. The rest of the course wasn't amazing though - there are a couple sections in long tunnels where it was absolutely boiling hot (the heat wave won't have helped!) and they ran out of water towards the end.
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    Long stretch in a park in the middle which was full and quiet, but around the tourist areas the atmosphere was awesome.
