Your Experience

The Paris Half Marathon also known as the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris usually attracts 40,000+ entrants. A big percentage are 1st time half marathoners. All can experience this lively and exciting half marathon.

The Place de la Bastille is at the heart of the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris, with a start on the Boulevard Henri IV and a finish at rue de Lyon after a quick step on the Place de la Bastille. Located in the Paris city centre, this start and finish area makes your Paris Half Marathon experience nice and easy.

It’s a great way to see the city, achieve a half marathon personal best time (PB) or tick off the training list as a stepping stone to a marathon in future……..or why not all 3 reasons!

The starting and finish area of the Paris Half Marathon is in the area of the Place de la Bastille. The race will start on the Boulevard Henri IV, continue through the streets of Paris, between 5km and 15km in the beautiful Bois de Vincennes park and remaining 6kms along the seine to finish on Rue de Lyon.
