Paris Marathon is a great one to do if you want to go as a group as there is no ballot, you just pay for your entry so you don't need to worry about not getting a place. The lead-up to the day is well organised, but keep and eye on where you stay vs where the pack pickup is, it can be on the opposite side of town!Race morning was a great atmosphere, but make sure to not rely on using a toilet at the start line...there was a 30 person queue to get into the McDonalds near the start line.Course was great, pretty flat overall so good for a fast time, plenty to look at as you run (proper sightseeing race) and well placed water stops.… read more

Stunning course through central Paris taking in two parks at the extremities of the route. Really well supported and coordinated. Thoroughly recommend!

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.

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.

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.

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