The Paris Marathon is one of the most beautiful and famous in Europe. The first Paris Marathon was held on 19th July 1896, when 119 participants ran 40 km through the French capital in less than 4 hours. Since this first edition, all those participants who reach the finish line are awarded a medal in honor of their achievement. Paris stimulates the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched and tasted, even running! Over 30,000 runners are now registered for this year’s marathon, which once more promises to be a huge event.
