Choose a sunrise running tour in Paris
Running tours have become popular alternatives to traditional walking tours in the French capital, as they do double duty, offering fitness on holiday alongside the opportunity to cover a lot of Parisian sightseeing ground – and all this with the help of a local guide. This particular run starts at Notre-Dame Cathedral and passes the Louvre, the Tuileries Garden, Place de la Concorde, the Avenue Champs-Elysées, the Hôtel des Invalides and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. Stops are planned along the route to allow for selfies, Instagram shots and refreshments. It’s recommended that participants be active and capable of running 5 kilometres (3 miles); the running tour lasts two hours.
