Any races in Paris around Oct 2013?

by jack208 Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 8:26 PM

Hi, am thinking of dropping in to Paris on the week of 19 Oct for a week before moving on to Essen the following week for our annual boardgame conference. Would like to know if there's any race/run in Paris or nearby in this weekend - or even the weekend after ie Nov 1st?

I'm aware of the Paris 20K run near Eiffel Tower but that's a week earlier ie on Oct 13th else it would have been the perfect one.

Thanks.

    we found one 10K race in Paris on the weekend of 20th Oct which is just perfect. Does anyone know whether it's easy to hop from Paris to Reims? If it's a quick easy train ride, we might be game for that! :)

    You get the train from the Gare de l'Est in Paris for Reims, takes just over an hour.
