At 8:15 am on Sunday 8 April, 55,000 plucky runners will set out to run the 42.195 km of the 42nd edition of the Paris Marathon. This is a unique opportunity to take in the capital. Along with New York, London, Berlin and Chicago, the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon is one of the five most important marathons in the world, as much because of the sheer number of participants and performance achieved as by the services and logistics provided and the media coverage. To avoid the inevitable traffic jams, it is a good idea to book a parking space in advance through our website. It will cost you less.
The participants set off from the foot of the Arc de Triomphe. The route goes down the Champs-Elysées to the Concorde then on to the Bastille, Nation and crosses the Bois de Vincennes. On the way back, the route runs past Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, runs once more through greenery at the Bois de Boulogne before finishing on Avenue Foch. If you intend watching the start, park your car in the Wagram Arc de Triomphe car park, in the Claridge Champs-Élysées car park, in the Berri Champs-Élysées car park, or in the Marbeuf Champs-Élysées car park. They all are near the Champs-Elysées.
Every year, the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon attracts more and more people. Tourists and athletes gather to celebrate sport in a spirit of conviviality. Hence the inevitable parking problems in Paris. Book your parking space ahead on ParkingsdeParis.com and make the most of our competitive rates!
