The Marathon Pour Tous will be an unforgettable experience for every participant. From the evening start, on the same route and on the same day as the men's Olympic event, a few hours before the women's event, to the entertainment alongside the route and the presence of numerous athletes and personalities who will come to experience the event alongside the participants... everything will come together to forge the memories of a lifetime!
Athletes and celebrities will be taking their places in each starting wave, alongside the participants, to liven up the warm-up and create an atmosphere of excitement all the way to the finish line.
For the duration of the Marathon Pour Tous, runners will be provided with an extra musical incentive. Along the route, in every city crossed by the runners, numerous music groups and their diﬀerent tunes will accompany the pack of runners as the kilometres and diﬀiculties of the route progress.
At kilometre 7, we get down to the nitty-gritty: this is where the Supporters’ Square will be located, where the crème de la crème of French supporters will be cheering on t he runners. Just what you need to get your Marathon oﬀ to a good start. Kilometre 7 is a strategic point, as it marks the separation between the marathon and 10km courses.
A special zone, made up of rings that will form a hundred metre-long light tunnel, will be a source of motivation for the runners. As they approach the final climb of the route at kilometre 28, before taking on the infamous kilometer 30 marathon wall, they will find the visual energy boost they need to overcome the final diﬀiculties of the course!
At kilometre 38, the emotions of the feat begin to assail the runners as they enter the final kilometres of the race. This is where families and supporters will gather, in a dedicated area where they will be able to cheer on their runner in the final kilometres: a podium will be set up, and a DJ will bring the area to life to provide the runners with the loudest cheers.
At the finish line, the runners will be welcomed at the Esplanade des Invalides, which will be transformed by a sound and light show to give the runners a fitting welcome at the conclusion of their feat.
Other areas along the route will be activated by Orange, oﬀicial partner of the Marathon Pour Tous who will be putting in place a host of activities to further encourage, inspire and motivates participants in the Marathon Pour Tous, and also by our technical partner Bridgestone.
