La Foulée Royale, the flagship race in the Parc du Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye (78), returns on Sunday June 9, 2024 with 1.5km, 5km and 10km courses for the whole family! So, are you ready to take up the challenge?

The Foulée Royale is back for an epic 43rd edition! On Sunday, June 9, 2024, starting at 9:30 am, join this not-to-be-missed foot race in the Parc du Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye (78), and experience an adrenalin-filled day in a historic setting. The event offers races for the whole family, from 1.5km, 5km and 10km, so whether you're an occasional runner or a seasoned athlete, there's bound to be a course just right for you!

Races on the program:

  • Children's 1.5km race: start at 11 a.m. (born between 2011 and 2014)
  • 5km race: start at 9:30 am (born < 2010)
  • 10km race (2 loops of 5km): start at 9:30 am (born < 2008)

Then it's off down the picturesque paths, past the flower-filled gardens and across part of the majestic terrace designed by Le Nôtre, overlooking the Seine and the rooftops of Paris. The tour then continues through the national forest, before ending at the foot of the magnificent Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, ancestral home of the kings of France, now home to the Musée d'Archéologie nationale.

This year, the Foulée Royale welcomes the "Parcours du coeur" organization. Two stands will be set up to provide information on the prevention of cardiovascular risks, and to train runners in the management of cardiac arrest through the practice of the famous massage on mannequins. A great opportunity to combine sport, health and prevention!

So, are you ready to take up the challenge and push back your limits in a historic setting? Put on your sneakers, save the date and join the 43rd edition of La Foulée Royale in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Yvelines!
