THE 2017 SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC MARATHON DE PARIS FOR DISABLED PARTICIPANTS
As has been the case for more than 25 years, the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris will welcome standing and wheelchair disabled athletes who will take on the mythical 42.195km distance through the streets of Paris and the green avenues of the Bois de Vincennes and the Bois de Boulogne.
Among the 57,000 participants taking place in one of the biggest marathons in the world, French and foreign disabled athletes will be urged to push themselves beyond their limits and beat their records.
With a ten minute head start over able-bodied athletes, the disabled athletes will be able to follow the same route in complete security, and the public will be able to cheer them on.
Registrations for the wheelchair race and for the standing disabled athletes (visually-impaired, deaf, etc.) should be made by contacting the Fédération Française Handisport.
