Paris Marathon 2017

Franz - That sounds like an interesting run. Well done on beating your time from last year.

Bexi22 - I always stay in Montmartre. Mainly as I'm a creature of habit and I found a decent cheap hotel there with access to the start/finish area via a short Metro ride. It's also easy to get a direct Metro out the expo if you wander along to Pigalle Metro (line12).

ryantilley - Welcome to the thread!

Since it's your first marathon I'd look to find a plan that best works for you in terms of running experience and how regularly you'll be able to train. All marathons are a learning experience, but in particular your first will teach you a lot about what works for you and what doesn't. The Hal Higdon plans are common starting steps for many, as he offer varying plans depending on your starting fitness level Hal Higdon Training

That's a fantastic time for your first half. There's certainly speed in those legs.

Midgies aren't an issue at Loch Ness.

Mandydebs - Welcome to the thread! You won't be alone in Paris if you don't want to be. There are plenty of meet-ups that weekend, and as someone who always travelled alone to races before running Paris for the first time in 2012 I can easily say that there are great friendships to be made on here.

Franz - Loch Ness is a good event. I'm sure you'll love it.

Christopher - Fantastic PB in Amsterdam. Well done! Enjoy your well earned rest week.

Nells - That's an interesting one. I'm still on my first hand for finger counting Paris, only just, as this'll be number five for me. There must be one of the regulars that's done more than me.

Madhu2 - Welcome to the thread!

Franz - Good luck with your trail run this weekend. I have one the following weekend. That Antonine Wall Trail Race.I'm also hoping for fair weather, but this being Scotland at the end of October I'll settle for anything that isn't gale force winds and torrential rain. 

Nells - Well done on another parkrun PB!

Kelly - Welcome to the thread!

You'll love Paris. It's a fantastic event. In terms of meet ups stick around here and there will be plenty on the race weekend. We tend to organise get together for meals, expo visits, post-race drinks and the all important photos at the Arc before the start.

There are more than a Paris thread regulars that are London based.

Christopher - Sorry to hear your knee is giving you problem.

I'd say avoid running until you can walk pain free on it. I think rest is better than trying to do any training at this point. If your training has gone well until now losing a week isn't going to impact you, training with an injury will.

I lost a week of training three weeks out from Paris in 2012 after breaking a toe, and that was my first sub 4. Get healthy for the start line. You've done the hard training already.

Wishing all the best at achieving that sub-4. I remember how happy I was to crack that target in Paris back in 2012 after a few failed attempts at going sub-4.
