Do you know that besides the islands "Ile de la Cité" and "Ile Saint Louis", in Paris, the Seine also accommodates the "Ile aux cygnes" (cygne=swan), artificial island of about one kilometer, an ideal straight line for runners?
While passing by the "Champs-Elysées", we noticed that the preparations for the National Day were quite advanced. The terraces of the presidencial stand, which will welcome the government, at the "Place de la Concorde", on July 14th, are already installed as we can see on the picture below.

Seats, barriers, installed in the "Champs-Elysées", will also serve again for the last stage of the "Tour de France", on July 24th.
The "Champs-Elysées" for the military parade, the "Champs-Elysées" for the "Tour de France", yes, but what we, Paris Running Tour, like above all, is the start of the Paris marathon!
Merci Sarah !
