PARIS RUNNING TOUR

PARIS RUNNING TOUR

      At Sacrebleu Paris we care deeply about maintaining our clients health and fitness routines during their visits.  In a city as historic as Paris we decided to try one of the best kept secrets to understanding the City of Light while staying fit.  Paris Running Tour is the first of its kind to offer their native knowledge while touring the city in full speed.

      We had the pleasure of running with longtime tour guide and manager Jean-Charles who met us at Palais-Royal ready to embark on our first running adventure through Paris.  Like with all his groups, Jean-Charles warmly assessed our expectations of the tour (how long, running distance, knowledge of Paris, etc.).  Paris Running Tour also offers different tour packages that can be chosen depending on individual or group needs ranging from 8 km (5 miles) to 20 km (12.5 miles).  As beginners, we decided we would run the 8 km.

      So began our journey and immediately we felt the passion of local Jean-Charles who clearly has a deep love for and knowledge of the city.  As you run through the city he offers pauses to stop and contemplate French history beginning from the 15th century.  One soon realizes how much history lurks on every corner of Paris.

       Almost more exciting than the action packed history lesson was tracking our success! Jean-Charles surprised us by showing us our finished route which began at Palais-Royal and ended at the Louvre after running through République.  Seeing our progress was extremely satisfying and encouraged us to run even more the next time.  Jean-Charles was truly an attentive guide with the spirit of Paris running through his veins.
