During the race, the organization has obviously planned eight refreshments during which the runners can have their fill and regain their strength with, for example, bananas, gingerbread, sugar cubes and water. They will be positioned approximately every five kilometers. Toilets are also provided near the aid stations as well as bins where participants can throw their waste.

They will pass in front of the Opéra Garnier to reach the Opéra Bastille. At kilometer 7, all the participants will go towards the Bois de Vincennes which they will go around. The main straight line will remain, from Vincennes to Boulogne passing in front of the Gare de Lyon, Notre-Dame de Paris, the Eiffel Tower and Roland Garros.
