Each year, people all over the world enjoy coverage of an event in which runners defy their physical and mental limitations and push themselves to glory on the most beautiful avenues of the capital. This year, your Hotel Eiffel Blomet offers you the opportunity to get up close to this great sporting event and see the Paris Marathon live and in person.
The Paris Marathon in figures
On April 14th, some 55,000 runners, men and women, will race the 42.195 km of a long-distance road race that will take them from the Champs-Élysées to the Bois de Vincennes, the Bois de Boulogne and beyond. All of them combined will travel a total distance of a little less than two million kilometres. That’s more than double the distance of a trip from the Earth to the Moon and back! Amateurs will rub shoulders with professionals and no fewer than 145 nationalities are represented. Around 250,000 spectators are expected to cheer on the brave competitors.
Thrills and emotions
However, the Paris Marathon is not just about numbers. It represents a punishing and daunting undertaking for experienced professional runners, not to mention the amateur athletes who set themselves this challenge. Moreover, the magic of the Marathon also arises from its the setting, which includes the banks of the Seine and the Champs-Élysées, through the Place Vendôme, the Place de la Bastille, the grounds of the Château de Vincennes and the Fondation Louis Vuitton. The capital’s remarkable diversity is used to great advantage!
The Paris Marathon is one of the essential sporting events of the spring and is supported by many celebratory and fun events that are open to all. Book your break at the Hotel Eiffel Blomet and discover the friendly and warm atmosphere that reigns around the event!
