EVENTS ORGANISED BY THE PARIS 2024 CLUB SINCE 2019
The 2,024m run held at the place La Concorde in Paris
On Olympic Day 2019, the Place de la Concorde was transformed into a huge sports ground, offering the public a wide range of introductions to Olympic and Paralympic disciplines. To mark the occasion, a race over a symbolic distance of 2,024m was organised, with 24 bibs to be won (12 for women, 12 for men).
An unprecedented chase against the legend Kipchoge
On 31 October 2021, 1,000 days before the Games, Eliud Kipchoge took up the challenge of a race on the Champs-Elysées, organised by the Paris 2024 Club and Orange, Official Sponsor of the Marathon Pour Tous. The format was that of a chase: more than 4,000 participants were divided into starting waves, with the slowest starting first, followed by the fastest, with Eliud Kipchoge in hot pursuit. The 1835 runners who were not caught by the Kenyan star won their bib for the Marathon Pour Tous.
Paralympic Day Run
To mark the Paralympic Day on 8 October 2022 at the Place de la Bastille, Paris 2024 organised a race in the form of an evolving relay inspired by the “Palio of Siena”: contested by 24 teams – including one made up of members of Team Orange Running. A total of 142 bibs for the 42km and 48 bibs for the 10km Marathon Pour Tous were up for grabs at this event.
