The Race will start at 10AM; groups will form near the Pont d’Iena beginning at 9AM.
CELEBRATE and NETWORK at a post-race brunch (Cost, location and time to be provided.)

Annoa Cirian, from HDF Finance, ran the Parisienne last year, here is her story:

“Some of you might already know about the race that is becoming a major event in Paris; you might even have run it before! All women are welcome, from 7 to 77 years old, Parisian or not. The idea is to share a truly fun and enjoyable event and help raise awareness and funding for Breast Cancer Research.

It is only 6 kms from the start, on the Iéna bridge, to the finish line under the Eiffel Tower! If you are generally fit and reasonably in shape, you should be able to run this in under 40 minutes and walking is permitted. I myself am not a marathoner (!) and only trained a few times before participating last year and I finished!!!! There were 17.499 other ladies running with me; the positive and emotional atmosphere was something that cannot be forgotten; it moved me to tears.

As in the past, the Village area opens up on the Friday before the race, with many stands from the main sponsors (Nike, Weleda, Fitness . . . )

Every Sunday morning, Nike organizes free training sessions; just meet up at 9h45 at their Champ Elysees store! They also offer a few evening shopping sessions and special rebates for runners registered for the Parisienne!
