Paris Half Marathon (French: Semi-marathon de Paris) is an annual half-marathon held every March in Paris, France. It currently holds IAAF Bronze Label status.
With almost 40 000 participants the event attracts runners from the Ile de France region, the rest of France as well as all over the world. The run is a festival-like experience with musical events along the route, not to forget the spectators!
You can leave your bag for free at the left luggage facilities at the start area and the end, so you can run with a clear head and empty pockets. You pick it up after the race upon presentation of your bib.
Refreshments will be organized every 5km. You can grab some water, dried fruit, fresh fruit, and sugar.
All participants will be issued with an electronic chip when they pick up their race numbers
