BONJOUR PARIS

 

Paris, the City of Light, the most beautiful of cities which sits like a monument to style on the banks of the Seine. On those days when the light reflects perfectly off the Louvre it can feel feels like the whole world rotates around the Eiffel Tower. Paris you are a dream come true.

Paris is also France. And France is the home of running. A country with the proudest of running traditions. A nation of sprinters, trail runners, marathoners and casual but-oh-so-well-dressed park runners this city and country breathes running. We are so proud to have a chapter here.

We maybe new to Paris but we believe our take on running is a fresh approach to a city with the most wonderful of traditions. We are Paris and this is our home. So come and run the Seine, embrace the beauty of this majestic city and join our community.

Welcome to Paris Midnight Runners.

1. HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR YOUR EVENTS?

Sign up via our mobile app myCrew (iOS | Android). Our events are free but their capacity is limited! Make sure to tap 'check in' in the app when you arrive to the event so we can record your attendance. 

2. THE EVENT SAYS IT’S FULL, CAN I STILL COME?

We have to keep a limit on numbers so sadly not - but please sign up to the waiting list (if there is one) and we will let you know if there are any late cancellations. We have to put a cap on our events for safety reasons. We recommend signing up to another future MR event.

No – Paris Midnight Runners is totally free.

Please check our Facebook page or the myCrew app (iOS | Android) for the latest details but typically:

  • Tuesday 10k Boot Camp Run - EVERY WEEK - starting at 7:30pm (please arrive by 7:15pm to check in and leave your bag)

5.  HOW FAST DO YOU RUN/ AM I FAST ENOUGH?

The speed of our group varies between 6:30 min/ miles to 9:30 min /miles. On our 10k boot camp workout stops are a perfect opportunity for slower runners to catch up with the faster ones but to enjoy them, you should be capable of running 10k (6 miles) in 60 mins. You should be comfortable in running 10k.

11. WHO ORGANISES MIDNIGHT RUNNERS?

Midnight Runners is organised by a group of volunteers, known as Crew Captains – you will recognise them by the C bands at events. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and none of the Crew are paid by Midnight Runners. We all have other jobs but are enthusiastic about keeping running inclusive and fun.

12. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU PLAY?

It varies from event to event, but it's always good running music! We also carry a bunch of Ultimate Ears Boom and Megaboom speakers as well as the PartyBag so New York can hear us ;-)

13. WHAT ARE THE ‘MIDNIGHT’ RUNS?

Each month we organise a special run on Friday / Saturday which is themed and followed by an after-run party! It is a lot of fun! 

14. COULD YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE AFTER-RUN PARTY?

Sure. After the Midnight Run (typically around 11pm) we head to a bar for a party and to grab a few drinks. There is a DJ, dance floor and, like in any bar, a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

15. DOES EVERYONE GO AS THEY ARE TO THE AFTER-RUN PARTY OR IS THERE SOMEWHERE TO GET CHANGED?

Most people go as they are, but of course you can get changed. There are no showers, though.

MEET THE CREW

This wonderful bunch bring so much energy every week.

 Simone, like many of our members and crew, was always a runner - she completed marathons in Hamburg, Berlin and Paris - but until Midnight Runners this German girl had always trained alone. Then she found us: “I love the spirit of the group, the commitment, the energy of the crew as well as all the people that come back, week after week, whatever the weather. From running alone to leading a run crew - I couldn’t imagine that half a year ago”.   Did she ever get nervous commanding the attention of over 70 super charged Berlin runners? “What doesn’t kill is not worth worrying too much about - I don’t take things too seriously”. Why volunteer her time (and voice), week in week out? “ I have met so many new and amazing people - I really cannot believe how a community has changed a part of my life in such a new and wonderful way”.   What does someone as dynamic and passionate as Simone have planned for 2018? “Many, many more crazy running events. I want to beat my PB of 3.45hrs and compete in the Marathon de Medoc (you haven’t heard of this? - it is a marathon where you drink wine the whole way around…), continue to meet many more people who share the same passion as me - oh and learn French…” Why learn French we ask? Simone took a job in Paris in 2018…obviously a huge loss to the Berlin community, but not to the wider Midnight Runners family. She will help open Paris Midnight Runners in September 2018 and we will continue to see her happy face on our runs around the world. Viva La France and Vive la Simone!
