In the park and the gardens

On July 1st 2012, the Go Sport Running Tour of the Palace of Versailles will be held in the park and the gardens of Versailles.

This first Tour is sponsored by Marie-José Pérec, triple Olympic 400 metres champion, and it features on the national and international fixtures list of the French Athletics Federation. It consists of 8 events overy varying distances and open to different categories of competitors, from the key race, the Course Royale over 15 km, to the Marche Royale, a Nordic walking race with timing and placing.

Apart from its exceptional setting, the special feature of the Go Sport Running Tour of the Palace of Versailles is that it will be held over a mixed terrain of roads, paths, lawns and even paved areas. Runners of all ages and nationalities, members of athletic clubs or not, are invited to take part in this unique first experience.

Numerous entertaining and cultural attractions will be organised for the runners (and walkers!) and those accompanying them, dedicating this day to both sport and the exploration of the park and gardens of Versailles, and making the Go Sport Running Tour of the Palace of Versailles a day to enjoy with your family or friends as well as a sport challenge for individuals or groups.

Owing to the configuration of the places, the number of competitors is limited and registration is obligatory.
