Come and join the runners who remove the divide between Paris and the suburbs. A run open to all and sundry, which connects the historic Place de la République to the mythical Stade de France!
The Grande Course du Grand Paris Express is rooted in its time: innovative, eco-responsible, solidarity-based and popular. We want to show that it is possible to organise a big race, in a city, while limiting the impact on the environment.
Sustainable development is the cornerstone of this event. The aim is to organise a race with a low ecological impact and a high social impact. To do this, we reduce our waste at source (0 plastic) and carry out the most accurate sorting possible (5 flows) to optimise the recycling of our waste. In the village, we will welcome companies from the Social and Solidarity Economy, linking sport, well-being and ecology. Many workshops and conferences will also be offered to the participants, so that everyone can leave with their bib but also with new ideas!
The Grande Course is committed to solidarity, in particular by setting up an eco-box to collect the runners’ sporting objects and give them a second life. We offer bibs to refugees in an attempt to bring some fun to their very difficult lives. History will remember that the first winner of the Great Race in 2017 was a political refugee!
On Sunday, March 13th 2022, we hope many of you come, to run it BIG and eco-responsibly!
