About RunRun Tours
Hi there, we're Hamidou and crew! As you can already have guessed, we are local running and triathlon athletes with quite deep knowledge about the best running routes and the stories of monuments and historical events they hide in! What you cannot possibly know, is that we have been doing that professionally for a couple of years already, for we founded in 2016 our own running tours company: RunRun Tours. Therefore, more than simply accompanying us on our jogging routine, we are committed to offering you the best active experience you can possibly have of Paris! Everything is planned for you get to know things you cannot find in a guide book while getting fit and feeling free to taste delicious French gastronomy with no guilty conscience!

Sunrise Run & Sightsee in Paris

Choose your distance: 6 km (4 m) or 10 km (6 m), and let's go! We’ll be chasing the sunrise on a gentle run (your pace), plunging you into an unexpectedly empty Paris. At this time of the day, most people are still sleeping and the rising sun colours the monuments and buildings with nuances of pink and gold. This is Paris as you’ve probably never seen before!

We’ve carefully planned every step of this running tour for you to learn inside stories and fun facts, have a great time and work out before breakfast. You don’t have to lift a finger: only to move your legs!

Some reasons for joining a RUNRUN TOUR:
✔️Get to know Paris from a top-class local runner, learning things that you can't find in a guide book
✔️We're "the glamping of running": Bottled water, healthy snacks and a waterproof running jacket in case of rain are provided
✔️Work out before breakfast, feeling free to earn later the calories burned
✔️Relax and don't worry about getting lost or planning a running route by yourself

Run the Lights

Paris reveals itself in all its splendor at night! In this experience, we’re going to jog along a 6km/10 km (3m/6 m) route passing by illuminated streets, bridges and monuments that make Paris deserve the title of City of Lights.

The starting point of the tour will be Saint-Michel square, in the very heart of Paris. From there, your running guide will lead you on a round tour, at your own pace, past some shiny landmarks of Paris, such as Paris City Hall, the Notre Dame cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Concorde square, the Champs-Elysées avenue, the Eiffel tower, and much more!

Some quick pauses are planned for pictures and refreshments along the way. Your running tour host will carry your belongings (small items only) inside his/her backpack and will have water and snacks ready for you whenever you feel like it. All you have to do is to put on appropriate running gear and to lace up your trainers!

This is such a kind review, Anna! Thank you so much for taking the time during your vacation to write that. It was a pleasure exchanging messages and accompanying you on your rediscovery of Paris the active way! I'm especially glad that your review can help other runners to first, know that they can do their favorite activity while visiting Paris and also in virtually every city they visit - for RunRun Tours is part of a global community of more than 200 running tours suppliers worldwide, RunningTours.Net. Second, that they don't need to be afraid about the pace of the running tour, probably the number one question we receive from potential guests. Third and more importantly, you're absolutely right: runners love to meet each other and share their impressions, and we make a formidable and growing community around the world! That's why we love what we do, for it gives us the chance to meet so many nice people, just like you! Take care of yourself and see you next time for another run in Paris!

We offered a sightrun tour during a business event in Paris. The organisation of the tour was very professional and flexible. Very friendly contact. The participants enjoyed the tour very much and had a lot of fun with their trainer Hamidou. Thank you so much!

Review of: Run the Lights
We had a wonderful time. Hamidou is very knowledgeable and we learned so much. You get a much more intimate experience compared to going on a bus tour. Hamidou also took some really lovely photos for us.
