42,500 Finishers

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris continues to smash its own records year after year.

43,754 runners started the race this morning in a summer-like atmosphere which promised lots of sore muscles in the final few hundred metres on the cobblestones of Avenue Foch, soon left scorching hot by the runners… as well as quite a few sunburns for the approximately 250,000 spectators lining the streets of the most beautiful city in the world.

Everything fell into place for the Kenyan couple of Paul Lonyangata and Purity Rionoripo to write a rousing love story in the most beautiful marathon in the world, winning both of today's races!

It was yet more proof —not that any was needed— that Paris is the city of love. The 2017 Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris saw a married couple claim the double for the first time in history. Paul Lonyangata and Purity Rionoripo, clad in the sunny Kenyan colours, topped two 100% Kenyan podiums.

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is Paul Lonyongata's third victory on the queen of distances, following his triumphs in Lisbon in 2013 and Shanghai in 2015. How about Paris? He loves the city, he knows it and he has turned it into one of his stomping grounds. Just a few weeks ago, he carved his mark on the streets of the French capital, finishing second in the Fitbit half marathon with a time of 60′40″. "This might well be my greatest victory yet, and it's also a personal record", said the 2017 winner. "I felt great, it wasn't too hot or too cold, and the organisation was perfect."

The icing on the cake came a few minutes later, when his wife claimed the women's race at an infernal pace. Purity Rionoripo even set a new Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris records of 2 h 20′55″, beating fellow Kenyans Agnes Barsosio and 2014 champion Flomena Cheyech.

37% of athletes were running their first marathon. Jean-Marc, who came from Toulouse with his running-loving wife, was one of them. The fit 40-year-old cyclo-cross aficionado clocked 3 h 17′ despite "hardly training before my first marathon. A marathon is funny, it gets tougher towards the end… Luckily enough, we'll stay here a few more days to enjoy Paris. I must admit I missed a few landmarks during the race…»

Andrea comes from Mexico. The 30-year-old took advantage of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris, which she finished in 3 h 21′, to spend a fortnight in Paris for her holidays. "It was an incredible moment. Thank goodness I'm in Paris, because I'd be extremely disappointed if I only thought about my performance. But it's so beautiful I'll take home wonderful memories."

Pitch Marathoon’s: congratulations toon's!

April 8th 2017

More than seven hundred children

More than seven hundred 5 to 10 year-old children came together this morning for this fun and sporting occasion on the Champ de Mars.

On the schedule of this Pitch Marathoon's: a village with many activities (make-up, a brass band, a clown, etc.) and two races, a 1.2k race for 5 to 7 year-olds and a 2.2k race for 8 to 10 year-olds.

In particular it provided an opportunity to enjoy a family and friendly moment around the values of sport!

At the finish of the Pitch Marathoon’s, the young champions from ten or so nations - from New Zealand to the United States - were awarded real finishers medals. And since running whets the appetite, an enjoyable breakfast was served to everyone present.

Congratulations toon's!

3,000 participants at the Paris Breakfast Run!

April 8th 2017

Running while Paris is still asleep!

This morning 3,000 runners took advantage of a rare privilege. A five-kilometre run in the heart of the prestigious monuments and places which epitomise Paris’s history  — the Carrousel du Louvre,  the Musée d’Orsay, the Pont Alexandre III, and a magnificent finish on the Champ de Mars, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

And the Parisian-style breakfast, served at the finish facing the Eiffel Tower, gave the French, American, British, Australian, Brazilian and Mexican marathon runners an opportunity to exchange views. 70 nations were represented in total.

Tomorrow it’s the big day: the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris will be setting off at 8.20am on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées!

D-1: are you ready?

April 8th 2017

Tomorrow it’s the big day! The 41st edition of the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon will set off at 8.20am on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées!

If you haven't picked up your race number yet, we remind you that the Salon du Running – located at the Porte de Versailles’ Parc des Expositions (subway Line 12, Porte de Versailles stop) closes its doors today at 7pm. Don’t forget to bring your essential documents with you: a proof of identity, your notification letter as well as a medical certificate.

Take advantage of the last hours before the start to enjoy the pleasure that awaits you: running 42.195km in the most beautiful city in the world. Here are some tips the day before the marathon:

  • Drink throughout the day and eat early (12 hours before you set off) focusing on slow-burning carbohydrates.
  • Make sure your equipment is adapted to the race. N.B.: don’t run with new shoes.
  • Plan to arrive on the Champs-Elysées tomorrow at least 45 minutes before your start. It’s better to take the subway than any other means of transport (line 1, George V or Charles-de-Gaulle stops).
  • Go over your race plan in your head without forgetting the most important thing: the pleasure of running.

The weather forecast is good and the temperature will be quite warm for the season. Don’t forget to wear spring clothing (shorts and a short-sleeved shirt) and drink at each feeding station.


Tomorrow, Paris will be yours. And there will be 57,000 of you who will enjoy a historical sporting and unifying experience as you give it your all.

Be proud of the journey you are about to undertake.
You are already champions!

This association has been collecting, repairing and transporting running shoes to West Africa since 2006.

In the heart of the pack

April 12th 2015

Pride & emotion

For several hours the most colourful streamers were visible throughout Paris. And the capital had never celebrated the marathon in a more joyful way. Maybe it was the exceptionally clement spring weather that made you courageous. Maybe it was simply due to the quality of your training sessions which prepared you for the 42.195km course. 

 

Kenya’s Mark Korir dominated the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon in an excellent time of 02:05:49. In the women’s category, Ethiopia’s Meseret Mengistu triumphed in a time of 02:23:36. It is also worth mentioning France’s Julien Casoli, who was the winner of the disabled race.

 

At the finish your drained yet delighted faces expressed the delight of all the hard work accomplished, and the pride - for some of you- of becoming a member of the marathon community.  “It was my first time!” gushed Caroline. “I am thrilled.” François added with a great deal of emotion in his voice: “We are very fortunate to experience these kinds of occasions.”

There were 41,342 of you!

April 12th 2015

A new participation record

A new participation record was established for the 39th edition of the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon. 41,342 runners including 18,000 international competitors represented 150 nations: congratulations to all of you who experienced an amazing day of sport and fraternity in the streets and avenues of the most beautiful city in the world.

 

Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, stated before the start of the race: “Congratulations to the ever-increasing number of runners who gather together at the start.” 25% of entrants this year were women. Among them was Tamara from South Africa. “I came with my husband and my children. They are waiting to cheer me on at the Place de la Bastille.” Manakhatan, from Mongolia, added: “This is my first visit to Paris. I am very excited about taking part in this marathon.”

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped you throughout the race: from entering the start areas to handing over the medals. And now it’s time to celebrate!

Keep a bottle of water with you to hydrate yourself and take advantage of the sponging areas every 5km to cool down your face (remember to take the sponge that is placed in your runner’s bag with you)

Have a great race!

Tomorrow’s the big day!

And they're off! The start of the 39th Schneider Electric Paris Marathon will take place tomorrow at 8.54am on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées.

Here’s some advice before the start:

  • Don't doubt your ability to run the entire 42.195km. Everything you've learned during your training won't be lost in the pre-race nerves!
  • Stick to the race plan that you have developed throughout your training and check during the first few kilometres that you are not running too quickly.
  • Pay attention to your refreshments and hydrate yourself meticulously by drinking water every five kilometres. It will be relatively hot tomorrow on race day...
  • Soak up the festive atmosphere of this marathon in the most beautiful city in the world and really enjoy running.

Tomorrow, Paris will be at your feet. Enjoy being part of this event alongside more than 50,000 other runners.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the finish.

The logistics of the big day

April 10th 2015

Now it's over to you!

The big day is approaching and it’s time to check the final details for your participation in the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon.

In particular:

  • What you are going to wear during the race and what you are going to leave at the left luggage area (or what you will get rid of before you go into the starting area). Météo France is forecasting dry, warm weather. Take that into account!
  • The time it will take you to get to the Champs-Elysées using public transport (mainly Line 1 of the subway - George V or Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile stops).
  • The number of effort gels you will bring. Stick to the refreshment schedule you have tested during your long training sessions. Don't change anything at the last minute...

At 8.45am on Sunday, more than 50,000 competitors will cross the start line of the Schneider Electric Paris Marathon to run 42.195km in the most beautiful city in the world.

Enjoy being one of them!
