Famillathlon 2017 at Paris Champs de Mars

On Sunday September 24, 2017, the Famillathlon is back at Paris Champs de Mars and other cities throughout France to initiate the youngest ones to sport while gathering families around playful activities! Don’t miss this yearly event offering a whole range of free sporting activities for all ages at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

Regarding the Ile de France region, the Famillathlon 2017 is back this Sunday September 24, 2017 at the Champs de Mars and in Saint-Cloud. The principle is rather simple, bringing families and associations together for various sporting activities in order to raise awareness on the benefits of practicing a sport.

In France, about 94% of the surveyed parents say that spending some family time is a priority. Yet, about 31% share less than 30 minutes with their children for leisure or sporting activities per week. Most of them consider it insufficient and frustrating. What about changing things by finding the perfect activity-ies likely to please everyone?

The Famillathlon aims at making you all discover or rediscover how pleasant and benefiting sport and sporting activities can be, and motivating families to take time for practicing these activities regularly! With about forty sporting activities in free access, the Famillathlon is the perfect opportunity to initiate children to tennis, rugby, climbing…


Don’t forget to get your PLAN and your PASS at the reception stand! They will enable you to know the program of the day and to go to the various stands and win prizes by taking part in sports and animations!
