Wednesday 24 May
Teams will gather the night before to register and receive their safety briefing. A chance for everyone to get together and discuss tactics for the epic adventure ahead
Thursday 25 May
Day 1 - Things get real
Teams will gather together alongside the iconic Wimbledon Tennis Club, the excitement will be palpable with the road stretching out ahead of the runners. Runner 1 takes the baton and we are underway.
For runners 2-5 it’s time to hit the road and head to the first change over, each leg is roughly a half marathon distance and runner 2 needs to be ready at the changeover point to take on the baton. As the team head towards the coast, runner 3 and then 4 take over, by the time runner 5 is chewing up the miles the team head to the day 1 finish line where the basecamp is set up and waiting for your arrival. Time for a hot meal and perhaps an isotonic beer or two (for the non drivers) before it is time for the adventure to continue with the overnight ferry.

Day 2 - The Ferry
We arrive into Dieppe in the early hours. The teams start the day by heading to the Ferry terminal for a delicious breakfast ready to hit the road. Straight from the Ferry terminal runner 1 sets off, not as many miles to cover today and the going is straight and flat, time to motor.
Everyone should be done by early afternoon so a chance to kick back, recover and hang out with the rest of the teams. We have music, beers, food and a yoga stretching session in the local town hall hosted by the mayor to set you up for the Queen stage on day 3.
Saturday 27 May
Day 3 - The Queen Stage
The Queen Stage. Tough, long and stunning scenery. Reaching the campsite tonight will feel fantastic.
Sunday 28 May
Day 4 - The Finish
The finish line is in sight, the final push. The team reunites at the Trocadero. You don’t come this far and finish alone. All 5 of you cover the last mile together, finishing under the Eiffel Tower. You have just Run2Paris. Imagine how that feels.
We have hired a local bar where we can celebrate our achievements but once you cross that finish line it is up to you.
Turn around and head back straight away or enjoy the sights and sounds of the French Capital for a couple of extra nights. You have a ticket for a return ferry from Dieppe to Newhaven booked for Monday morning but do let us know if you want to change this. Driving home is going to highlight just how far you have run.
