La Parisienne: A Women's Race In Paris

Organized since 1997, La Parisienne is a race reserved for women where each participant runs at her own pace 6 km in Paris. Here is a presentation of this friendly and 100% female race.

What is La Parisienne?

La Parisienne is a non-competitive foot race for women 16 years and older. It is held every year in Paris over a distance of about 6 km.

This race over a distance accessible to all is a challenge taken up each year by several thousand female participants. It is also a festive and friendly event, where the main thing is to participate, each at her own pace...

Training sessions are organized from March onwards to prepare participants for the 6 km. Finally, advice evenings and workshops are held throughout the year to inform and educate women on health and lifestyle issues.

History of La Parisienne

Since its creation by Patrick Aknin in 1997, La Parisienne has been increasingly successful. Following the example of Paris, several large cities are now organizing their mini 'Parisienne'.

In 1997, 1,500 women took the start, in the alleys of the Bois de Boulogne, for the first exclusively female foot race. In 2009, out of 17,396 women registered, 14,850 took the start.

Since 2001, this race has been associated with a breast cancer awareness campaign. The Foundation for Medical Research or FRM organizes fundraising actions among the runners and companies registered in the race. In 2009, €77,148 was raised to fund breast cancer research projects.
