Some people don’t really know Paris while other lack sport in their daily lives. Luckily, Rallye Paris Tour Eiffel is here to change your life for an exceptional day.
So, for now 32 years, thousands of walkers gather around every year for a one-of-a-kind hike.
The goal? Practicing sport to evacuate excess of the holiday period while visiting the most beautiful neighborhoods in Paris that are still decorated with the Christmas lights. The next edition takes place this Saturday January 6, 2018 departing from the Halle Georges Carpentier.
So far, Rallye Paris Tour Eiffel reached such a remarkable success that goes beyond the Ile de France region. In a more than friendly atmosphere, you’ll walk by the main Parisian monuments (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Hotel de Ville, Palais Royal…), the Ile Saint-Louis or the famous and quaint rue Mouffetard alongside sport enthusiasts of all ages and from everywhere in France and in the world. Excluding Montmartre all monuments are yours, beautifully lightened up for the Holidays.
To take part to this rather original operation, there’s nothing simpler. Sign in to the historical association Godillot familial (website in French), the organizer of the rally and complete one of the 4 circuits (10km, 15km, 16km and 23k), to choose according to your stamina.
This year’s 4 routes:
Throughout the hike, you’ll have the possibility to get some food and water at the checkpoint. But there’s a catering area to help yourself at the Halle George Carpentier (until midnight!).
Here are some pictures so that you know what to expect:
A unique and tonic way to roam around Paris! The hike is open to all. Yet, children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Organizers are not responsible for any minor missing. Think about giving them the arrival address, your phone number and tell them to stay on the event route.
