Paris Marathon Travel and Entry Information

Paris Marathon

April 9, 2017


We are offering packages to the 2017 Schneider Electric Paris Marathon with some special features coordinated by our staff.  We have found that most of our travelers enjoy the camaraderie of meeting other runners from across North America.  We offer a guaranteed Paris Marathon entry even after online registration is closed.

We have selected five hotels which offer competitive prices, comfortable accommodations and excellent locations. The Hotel Splendid Etoile is a four-star hotel close to the Arc de Triomphe. You are about 1/4 mile from the finish and 1/4 mile from the start. The Hotel Frontenac is the sister hotel to the Splendid and within 100 meters of the start and a short walk from the finish. The Hotel de Sevigne is a three-star hotel within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and about 1/2 mile from the start and 3/4 mile from the finish. For those who are accustomed to the best accommodations and service, we are offering the luxury four star experience at the Hotel Powers.  We also offer the Hotel Cecelia, a three-star hotel within walking distance to the Champs Elysees.

Airfares are constantly changing and it is difficult to print the exact rates from your home city before they change again. Regardless, we can secure the lowest available airfares and will be happy to quote those to you by phone. Simply provide us with your dates and departure city.


Full Day Champagne Tour: Celebrate your marathon on Monday, April 10 with a full-day tour of the Champagne region with lots of sampling of the world's best bubbly with lunch, professionally hosted with an English speaking sommelier.

Full Day Tour to Versailles:   We are also offering a full-day excursion from Paris to Versailles on Saturday, April 8.  During the tour you will visit the famous Hall of Mirrors in the Palace, stroll through the gardens and the park of the Chateau on your way to visit the estate of Marie-Antoinette.  

Perhaps you would like to relax after the race with an excursion by car or rail to the south to Avignon, Cannes or Nice. Or maybe a tour of the wine valleys in Bordeaux, Burgundy or Provence.
