Paris, France (Suburbs)

Issy-les-Molineaux

On the banks of the Seine southwest of Paris, Issy Les Moulineaux is a center for the French telecommunication and media industries. The three routes below can be run separately, or combined (they’re each ~1 to 1.5 km from each other). Additionally, the Bois de Boulogne is 3 km away on the north side of the Seine.

Parc Omnisport Suzanne Lenglen: As its name suggests, the Parc Omnisport Suzanne Lenglen is a facility focused on athletics of all kinds. Runners can join in the fun on the many paved paths surrounding the stadium, track, and playing fields. The perimeter paths equal roughly 2 km, so runners may want to add on interior paths or do laps. Alternatively, they can use sidewalks to connect to nearby routes. There’s also a great running track. The park is located just south of Boul. Périphérique.  ROUTE MAP

Parc de l’île Saint-Germain: Island perimeter loop: 2.5 km (1.6 miles). Elev. 13m
The island of Saint-Germain sits between two branches of the Seine, and a huge percentage of its landmass is covered by a public park. Not only is the Parc de l’île Saint-Germain a great addition to the quays of the Seine, it can be a nice run on its own. From the D50 bridge, a loop is 2.5 km. ROUTE MAP

Parc Henri Barbusse: Though not very large, the quaint Parc Henri Barbusse is too pretty not to mention. The park has 1.5 km of solid-surfaced trail, and surrounding sidewalks easily connect this stretch to other Issy-les-Molineaux routes. ROUTE MAP
