Paris 2024’s mass participation marathon

It’s 1000 days to go until the world’s greatest athletes come together once more, all for the love of sports, across the picturesque French capital.

 From the bid phase, Paris 2024 promised to revolutionise the experience of the Olympic and Paralympic  Games for the general public. Many people shared a dream that is now a reality: at the Paris 2024’s Mass  Participation Marathon, amateur athletes will be able to follow the same route as the Olympic marathon  event, enabling as many as possible to run in the footsteps of outstanding athletes. This will be an  extraordinary experience, on a unique and original route, celebrating the history and of Paris and its region.

 Since the bidding phase, Paris 2024 has been determined to provide people in France with an outstanding  Games experience. Organising mass participation events with a marathon and a 10km race during the Games will be a first in Olympic history. Just like the Olympic Games, the Paris 2024’s Mass Participation Marathon will include 50% of men and 50% of women.
