Paris Marathon

£30 registration fee £450 sponsorship fee
7th April 2024 Europe

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world, as much for the size of its field as the performances of its runners. Each finisher comes home with incredible memories.

Tens of thousands of runners take part to tackle the most fabled long-distance discipline in athletics. This race across Paris, taking in the Champs Elysées, the Bois de Vincennes and Boulogne, offers an incomparable backdrop, with spectacular views and landmarks all along the route. 

The Run experience fair at Porte de Versailles, taking place three days before the marathon, is also an occasion not to be missed!

The marathon itself combines personal challenge with the chance to discover one of the world’s great cities. Runners will pound the pavements of the French capital’s most famous avenues and plazas, from the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, at the start, towards the Place de la Concorde. From the Rue de Rivoli you’ll then sweep through the Opéra Garnier, the Place de la Bastille. After a glimpse of greenery in the Bois de Vincennes, views of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower point the way home to the finish line.

Why run the Paris Marathon for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation?

  • We are the only lung cancer charity in the UK dedicated to helping everyone affected by lung cancer.
  • Lung cancer is a disease that, despite what many may think, can affect anyone.
  • It is the UK’s biggest cancer killer, with over 36,000 dying from lung cancer every year. It kills more people than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancer combined, and more women than breast and ovarian cancer combined.
  • It is our mission to ensure everyone diagnosed with lung cancer can live well with the disease for as long as possible.
