Paris Marathon

Are you ready to discover Paris on foot? Would you like to see the beauty of Paris while running a marathon? The annual marathon in Paris is one of the world’s biggest and best marathon races. Will you run it yourself this year?

A marathon covers a distance of more than 42km. It is a battle against the clock, but for most participants, a battle against your own body. Many people register for this marathon a year in advance and then start to exercise. Will they make it? Running a marathon is something that requires discipline and brain strength. You cannot run a marathon on impulse because, without the proper preparations, it is impossible and can be considered dangerous. In other words, prepare in time, exercise a lot, find some training buddies, and register for one of the best marathons in the world.
