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 camping village is set up and waiting for your arrival. Your spare kit is there for you to collect and it is time to settle in for a night under the canvas, with a hot meal in your belly and perhaps an isotonic beer or two to keep you hydrated.
Friday 26 May
Day 2 - The Ferry
The teams start the day by heading to the Ferry for the crossing into France, a chance to put your feet up and prepare for the tough days ahead. Straight from the Ferry runner 1 sets off, not as many miles to cover today and the going is straight and flat, time to motor.
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.
