Run My City
The team at Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris is sharing their passion for their city with guests through a unique weekly “cultural jogging” experience. This idea was initiated by two employees of the Hotel, both accomplished athletes and jogging fans wishing to help guests discover their city like never before. Over a distance of about 9 km (5.5 miles) featuring some of the most beautiful monuments and views of the city, guests of the Hotel can now combine their passion for running while enjoying Paris at its best. The voluntarily early departure for the run allows guests to enjoy the magic of the day rising over the City of Light – a truly special time of day. Running guests are supervised by Hotel staff, who are happy to share “their” Paris and the unique spectacle offered by the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, the Tuileries, the Louvre and its famous pyramid, the area near la Concorde and the Champs Elysées, all while Paris is literally waking up.
"More than just jogging, it is a real rediscovery of Paris to which we invite our guests, a much more intimate way to experience the beauty of the city, early in the morning with the unique satisfaction of feeling you have Paris just for yourself,” says Jose Silva, Regional Vice President and General Manager of the Hotel, who was the first volunteer to test the idea.
The jogging tour is complimentary for all the guests of the Hotel upon reservation at the Concierge desk, and takes place every Tuesday from 7:30 am to 8:30 am.
