Paris Marathon trip 3rd – 7th April, 2014

Newquay Road Runners are organising a trip to the Paris Marathon which is open to members of any club to join. If you’re interested in going, please contact Des Evans from NRR as detailed below.

Proposed Itinerary

Leave Newquay on the evening of Thursday 3rd April 2014 and catch the overnight ferry (with cabin) from Plymouth to Roscoff.

Friday – Travel from Roscoff to Paris, register for the marathon and then to the hotel, Hotel Ibis La Defense, 4 Boulevard de Neuilly, 92081 Paris La Defense Cedex, France.

Saturday – Free day, or free bus tour of Paris.

Sunday – Coach to the marathon start. Back to hotel after, then onto the restaurant in the evening (optional extra, but not to be missed!!).

Monday – Leave hotel in Paris early morning, heading for Roscoff, to catch 3pm-ish sailing back to Plymouth. Arrive back in Newquay around 10pm. 


The cost is £279 per person. There is a £150 single supplement.

On previous trips, everyone was successfully paired-up, but single rooms are available if required.

For anyone wishing to go, there will be a £50 per person deposit when you sign up. A second deposit payment of £100 per person will be due by 7th September. The final balance of £129 will be due by 15th February 2014.

All cheques should be made payable to WESSEX CONTINENTAL TRAVEL. Please note that all payments are non-refundable.

For those who intend to run the Marathon, I will keep you informed when the registration opens. It’s usually around the 22nd September. It is the responsibility of each individual to register for themselves. If you apply by the end of September for Paris, then you will get a place. 

If you are lucky enough to get a London Marathon place, and want to do Paris, then you could easily defer London until the following year.
