Have a read through the timeline of events.
Thursday 15 October
Teams will gather together alongside the iconic Wimbledon Tennis Club for registration and briefing, 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 16 October
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 17 October
The Queen Stage
The Queen Stage. Tough, long and stunning scenery. Reaching the campsite tonight will feel fantastic.
Sunday 18 October
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.
Then it’s up to you. Turn around and head back straight away or enjoy the sights and sounds of the French Capital on Sunday night. Remember Monday is a bank holiday. You have a ticket for a return ferry from Dieppe to Newhaven. Driving home is going to highlight just how far you have run.
