What to expect

Paris reveals itself in all its splendor at night! In this experience, you'll jog along a 6-10 km (4-6 m) route passing by illuminated streets, bridges and monuments that make Paris deserve the title of City of Lights.

You'll start at 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!

Note that from late spring and summertime, it's not night yet until almost 10.00 pm! So instead of jogging the illuminated streets, you'll be able instead to enjoy the festive atmosphere of pop-up bars, picnics and barbecues in the streets and along the docks.

  • The tours go on rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we'll contact you for cancellations and rescheduling.
