Energizer night run Paris


Last weekend I participated in the First ever Paris edition of the Energizer Night Run, a 6.5km run, at night, in support of UNICEF.

As some of you probably know, I only started running recently, so no-one was more suprised than me when I actually managed to run the complete course, because:

A) It was during a heatwave

B) I had never managed to run 6.5k before.

and

C) I didn’t discover this until the run had started, but the first part involved a not insignificant incline.

I was also a bit worried about running in the dark, given how bad my eyesight is anyway. Luckily, all 4,000 participants were supplied with headlamps so we could see where we were running.

The run took place at Domaine Nationale de Saint Cloud, a park that spans 460 hectares, has sculptures and fountains and amazing views of Paris. Definitely worth a visit for a picnic over the summer!
