Ecotrail Paris® and the Eiffel Tower Vertical® 2018

Ecotrail Paris® and the Eiffel Tower Vertical®, two sporting events that now are major, are back from March 15 to 18, 2018 in Ile de France. How about taking up the challenge?

Every year, hundreds of skilled Ile-de-France sportsmen and sportswomen face off one another for the EcoTrail Paris® and the Eiffel Tower Vertical®. This second event will start the competition off, on Thursday March 15, 2018.

And, since the Iron Lady will celebrate its 129th anniversary next year, there are as many runners called out to run. On the menu and for the fourth year in a row, a true race against time to climb as quickly as possible up to the top o the famous Parisian monument.

On March 17 and 18, 2018, we continue sporting festivities with the 11th edition of EcoTrail Paris®. Here, no need to be a top-level sportsman/sportswoman to come. If the latter will be largely pleased with the EcoTrail Paris® events, the less “warrior” runners will be far from being left over.

On the menu of the EcoTrail Paris®:

  • 80-km Trail: Saturday March 17, 2018 at 12:30 p.m.
    You’ll leave at 12:30 p.m. from the Ile de Loisir in Saint-Quentin en Yvelines for an urban race 92% made of trails and paths! Discover Ile de France by running through Domaine de St Philippe, Meudon Observatory, Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, Forêts Domaniales de Versailles, Ile-St-Germain or the Champ de Mars.

  • 45-km Trail: Saturday March 17, 2018 at 11 a.m.
    Leave from the royal gardens of the Palace of Versailles at 11 a.m. for 45 kilometers through Ile-de-France, a race made of trails and paths at 90% that will lead you at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

  • 30-km Trail: Saturday March 17, 2018 at 10 a.m.
    More accessible than the 45-km and 80-km trails, the 30-km one remains a wonderful challenge for every runner worthy of this name. Leave from Meudon Observatory for a trail to the Champ de Mars.

  • 18-km Trail: Saturday March 17, 2018 at 8:30 a.m.
    From the terrace of the Meudon Observatory to the Forêt Domaniale in Saint-Cloud, run 18 kilometers for charity! Indeed, beyond the sporting challenge, the 18-km trail supports the Fondation des Apprentis d’Auteuil allowing over 13,000 troubled young people to better integrate society.

By the way, varied Nordic walks and hikes are held throughout the weekend. Registrations will start on the last quarter 2017.

In short, here are amazing events for all runners wishing to make the best of Ile de France nature! But careful, the number of runners is counted, don’t hesitate to register as soon as possible on the official website.
