• Weekly runs through Paris popular among tourists, locals

    2013-07-23

    Many people who visit Paris expect to casually stroll through its streets, slowly taking in everything the City of Light has to offer. But some tourists are not taking their time making their way through the iconic destination. Instead, a growing number of harriers are joining Nike Running France for weekly twilight tours of Paris with a little added speed, The New York Times reports.

    The group, which offers the free runs, is comprised of both locals and tourists, all of them looking for a good workout while motoring past some of the city's most recognizable landmarks. Getting your blood pumping while running along the banks of the Seine or through the Champs-Élysées is undoubtedly an experience unlike any other. However, the runs are more than just a unique spin on sightseeing. Instructors expect participants to get in a workout including sit-ups or push-ups at a moment's notice, the Times notes.

    This isn't the first time the running community in Paris has offer a unusual way to experience the city. Last year, the so-called Flyknit Experience, allowed glow-stick weilding runners to take to the top level of everything from outdoor parking lots to nightclubs where they performed their usual workout routine at under the stars.
