Olympic Day 2018: Run a 2024-m race by night in Paris

Paris holds its Olympic Day on Saturday June 23, 2018. All day long, sport will be given pride of place throughout the French capital with free animations to seduce everyone and at nighttime, enjoy the empty streets to run a 2024-m race!

How about an original race in Paris? This Saturday June 23, 2018 take part in a 2024-m race at nighttime to celebrate Olympic sport. Together, Parisians and everyone feeling like doing it are invited to the Pont Alexandre III for a symbolic course: 2024 meters towards the Eiffel Tower.

This unique race will be the perfect occasion to get Paris by night and celebrate sport on the occasion of the World Olympic Day. Equipped with a LED wristband and a fluorescent tee-shirt, let’s joyfully run for a bit more than 2 kilometers!
