Overview
Paris reveals itself in all its splendor at night! In this experience, we’re going to jog along a 6km/10 km (3m/6 m) route passing by illuminated streets, bridges and monuments that make Paris deserve the title of City of Lights. The starting point of the tour will be Saint-Michel square, in the very heart of Paris. From there, your running guide will lead you on a round tour, at your own pace, past some shiny landmarks of Paris, such as Paris City Hall, the Notre Dame cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Concorde square, the Champs-Elysées avenue, the Eiffel tower, and much more! Some quick pauses are planned for pictures and refreshments along the way. Your running tour host will carry your belongings (small items only) inside his/her backpack and will have water and snacks ready for you whenever you feel like it. All you have to do is to put on appropriate running gear and to lace up your trainers!

We had a wonderful time. Hamidou is very knowledgeable and we learned so much. You get a much more intimate experience compared to going on a bus tour. Hamidou also took some really lovely photos for us.

Thank you for your great company and for taking the time to write this review! We totally agree with you, a running tour is more intimate and besides, running is healthier and environmentally friendly. It also provides a great opportunity to meet nice people like you! Thank you and see you two next time in Paris for another run!
