Paris Marathon 2015 info required
Just registered for next year as I suspect I will get the usual knock back from London, how easy is it to get a place? Are they guaranteed? Anyone have any other useful info?
I was also wondering about entry for Paris - I thought it was that you just entered and got a place but there seems to be some sort of pre registration and a draw in April? I thought you could wait till October usually?
I guess the pre reg puts us in the draw for one of these bands of entries.
I'd pop over to "Events" where you will find a Paris marathon crew who seem to know everything you could ever wish to find out
They've changed the entry system for next year. There is a ballot, but it's for cheaper entry places. The normal first come first served system will open up in September/October as normal, but the entry price is higher than the ballot places.
The race can sell out, but having ran it the last three years it's never sold out quickly. There were still places available as late as February for this years race.
Thanks Eggyh73 - I want to see if I get into London first before entering Paris.
Perfect, thanks very much
So I pre-registered, and I just got an email saying I've 'tire'd' a place - but I'd already jumped teh gun and gone for a place in Brighton. I can get a refund though. But now I'm unsure.
I suppose Paris would be nice.
Paris is great, I'm in
I have just got in the Paris one, but not sure whether to hold out to wait and hear about London, ran it this year for charity and absolutely loved it Any recommendations on what to do, what is Paris like compared to London? Thanks
Okay, so now I'm confused, how long do I get to 'hold' this place? I get paid on Friday, it'll still be there, right?
(Why can't the London Marathon be this simple...)
All this means, of course, that I will absolutely have to do the Berlin Marathon and then tell people I ran three capitals in Europe.
... does Rome have a marathon?
Says it's valid till the 4th of May.
I'm going for it I think, if I get a London place I will defer it!
Rome... then Paris... then London... then Charing Cross Hospital most likely
I've never run a Marathon, never run morethan 10 miles but Ive booked a place for Paris.
It's one way to get to see the city.
Yay! Go Richard!
It is, it's a brilliant way to see the city and get your barings. Also how many holidays do you go on where you get a medal at the end?
(That being said, in our house, we're divided on our opinions of the Paris Marathon medal this year. My co-habitors think it's clever, I'm not sold on it.)
I ended up doing it through charity because I really wanted to do it. I'm hoping to get a job with Mind at one point and that they'll let me take any leftover place...
Otherwise, I'm looking at Wales for this summer.
