Ecotrail Paris® and the Eiffel Tower Vertical®, two sporting events that now are major, are back on Wednesday March 11, 2020 and the weekend from Saturday March 14 to Sunday 15, 2020 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 Wednesday March 11, 2020 from 8 p.m.
On the menu and for the fifth time in a row, be reasy to experience a genuine race against time to climb up the 1665 steps as fast as possible and make it to the top of the famous 276-m high Parisian monument.
On March 14 and 15, 2019, we continue sporting festivities with the 12th 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 14, 2020 at 12:30 p.m.
You’ll leave at 12:30 p.m. from the Ile de Loisirs 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 14, 2020 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 14, 2020 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 14, 2020 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 on Sunday March 15, 2020.
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.
