FROM MARCH 11th TO 15th 2020

EcoTrail Paris launches a new race format in 2020 !

The EcoTrail concept was born in Paris in 2008, “based on the slightly crazy idea that it was possible to organize a nature race in an urban environment” (Jean Charles Perrin - Creator of the concept).  The objective was to provide Paris and the Ile-de-France region with a proper nature race accessible to all, highlighting the natural and cultural heritage of the region and focusing on the well-being of all participants.


The 13th edition of the EcoTrail Paris boasts a rich, diverse and extensive program, with a new race making its debut: the 10km trail.

This format will allow new participants to discover trail running and learn more about a discipline that is getting more recognition year after year.

Registration opens on Wednesday, October 30th. Registration cost: €26.  There will only be 1,500 runners taking part in the 1st edition of the 10km trail. The race will start and finish at the historical finish area of the 18km trail: the Parc de Saint-Cloud.

With over 92% of nature trails and a positive elevation of 170 meters (558 feet), participants will discover a pure nature course in the Parc de Saint-Cloud.

Information and registration :

- The other trail formats : With no less than 10,776 finishers in 2019, the 2020 edition is already shaping up to be even better. It will begin on Saturday, March 14th 2020, on the usual trail courses of the EcoTrail Paris. The legendary 80km trail is already waiting for its runners, and so are the 45km, 30km and 18km trails.

This year again, the 45km and 30km trails will finish at the Trocadéro, offering trail runners a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower.

- Hikes and Nordic walks : On March 15th 2020, 1,500 to 2,000 participants will take on 3 hikes and 3 Nordic walks, going through Paris as well as the Yvelines, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne departments and finishing around a festive buffet at the Salon Destinations Nature at Porte de Versailles in Paris.
