Reims, France

A guide to running in Reims and Some Nearby Routes in the Champagne Region


Reims is the unofficial capital of the Champagne region of France, and the country’s 12th most populous city. The city is known for the iconic Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Reims, Romanesque architecture, and attractive countryside surrounded by vineyards. There’s some nice running in Reims, ranging from waterfront paths to numerous parks.

A highlight of running in Reims is our 10k ‘runseeing’ tour, which hits the historic highlights, several parks, and a section of river path. Runners also love the 7 km All. de Tilleuls path along the Vesle River/Marne Canal. Head to Loivre for another nice bike path through the countryside. For some fantastic off-road running through the Champagne countryside, head 20 km south to the Parc naturel régional de la Montagne de Reims, which features 500+ km of scenic trails.
