32,685 runners packed together under and in front of the historic Arc de Triomphe. “Designated Pacers” at the start wearing different colored balloons that rise above the sea of runners. Pick a buoyant color/finishing time and then relax – simply stay within sight of your balloons. Knowing you’re on pace, you’re free to sightsee and let the mind wander — past all the architectural marvels and historic sights of Paree. Tres Bon!!
