Starting the weekend with beauty and colour, thousands of Parisian girls came together to celebrate the culmination of four weeks of glamorous and inspiring training nights for a run in the center of the city of style.

The No. 1 French distance athlete Laurane Picoche commented:

“I have never seen a race with such colour and style, it was not just about competition. Girls were together for fun and I loved watching that along the route.”

On the starting line with Laurane Picoche and actress Sabrina Ouazani, girls sprang into the party run with a launch of giant balloons in the sky.

They created an orange wave of colour, owning Paris with a unique route that saw eight “Party zones” unveiled along the way. Soap bubbles, light tunnels and live DJ sets kept every kilometre motivating until the finish line.
