Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris is now one of the biggest marathons in the world and perfectly combines a personal challenge with the chance to discover one of the world's greatest cities.

Race day will see you pound the pavements of the French capital's most famous avenues and plazas.  Starting at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, and finishing with views of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower to guide you home. Every year, this unique and spectacular setting attracts more and more entrants. There are now more than 23,000 runners from abroad, making up 40% of the field.

So, come join Team Action and take on the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris.

Run for children like Aiden

Aiden suffered from a shortage of oxygen at birth and was whisked away to the intensive care unit where the team began to reduce his body temperature to protect him from brain damage. Now a happy little boy who loves to play and be around people, he has cerebral palsy but therapy is helping him get stronger. Cooling therapy is the product of a 20-year programme of research to which Action Medical Research contributed.
