Paris Marathon: Mile 2

March 19, 2010
Mile 2 of the Paris Marathon 2010

Mile 2 takes the runners past the Louvre for the first time

Mile 2 is one for the Dan Brown fans as the runners take in their first view of the Louvre. The course hasn’t taken much in the way of a change of direction, and it’s still early days, so expect congestion to still be the order of the day.

A better road surface, but watch out for raised curbs and islands in the middle of the road.

By this stage in the course the road surface has improved with tarmac the order of the day. However, with visibility inhibited by a sea of runners, it’s worthwhile keeping a careful eye out for raised curbs and traffic islands in the middle of the road.

If you’re still keeping to the outside of the course, you’re probably best off. However, with bollards and railings lining the roads on this part of the city, don’t expect to be too opportunistic about over-taking slower runners. Remember, patience is the marathon runner’s friend.
