Represent your neighbourhood! Are you really going to let yourself be overtaken by Little Miss Place de Clichy or that guy from Montparnasse? Place de la Nation, Place de la Bastille: so long as your legs don’t fail you, you will cross the capital’s most iconic squares before reaching Châtelet. No time to stop at Les Halles for a panini – it will already be time to head back to Parc Floral to receive your finisher’s medal.

You won’t be alone: over 4,000 foreigners intend to defend their countries’ honour whilst enjoying the party atmosphere guaranteed by musical entertainment along the entire route.
