      Course (TBC)

      The starting line of the Paris Marathon is on the famous Champs Elysees Avenue, in front of the Arc de Triomphe. Runners head towards and around Place De la Concorde before turning right into Rue de Rivoli. This section takes you past Hotel de Ville, Place de la Bastille and through a more residential area on the eastern edge of the city before you enter Bois de Vincennes park and see the Chateau de Vincennes. A wide loop of the Bois de Vincennes returns runners to the heart of the city and along the river Seine, past Notre Dame cathedral, the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower before you enter the Bois de Boulogne park. 5km of the course takes you around the park before you finally and triumphantly finish in the wide and spacious Avenue Foch. In a nutshell, Paris in the spring, together with one of the biggest sightseeing marathons in the world is an incredible experience you won’t forget. Find course details and map here.

       

      Starting Times and Bib Numbers

      Although we are licensed to sell official entries for the 2024 Paris Marathon we have no influence over the allocation of starting times and bib numbers.

      Closer to the event we will ask for your expected pace and other details to complete the registration process for the 2024 Paris Marathon. The race organisers will allocate you a starting time and bib based on the information you provide.

       

      Medical Certificate: All runners are required to provide a medical certificate (this is a legal requirement for taking part in running events in France) stating that there is no medical indication that they cannot take part in a competitive running event. Medical certificates must be uploaded to the runner’s personal account before the event.

      Only if medical certificates have been uploaded to the runner’s account, can we collect and deliver entries to the hotel. If your medical certificate has been refused or if you didn’t upload it, you will have to print and bring it at the bib collection (it must be dated less than a year prior the date of the race and have the wording «running in competition », « athletism in competition » or « sport in competition »).

      To avoid mistakes we advise you to use this certificate template.

      For some people it may not be that easy to make an appointment with a doctor, or your doctor may charge a significant fee for this. You also may not want to add an extra burden to your local healthcare service. That’s why we introduce you to an online medical certification service. Simply fill out the online questionnaire, pay the fee and your certificate will be delivered to you. More details can be found here.
