The Louvre's arrival in Lens was eagerly anticipated by the people of the North of France. To celebrate this great project, the Route du Louvre was created to trace a link between the mining area and the city of Lille.
More than just a Marathon, this event symbolises ambitions for a rapprochement between the two territories.
But this is above all a sporting challenge with over 42 km to cover between Lille and Lens. Runners from all over France and further afield will compete in this festive event.
