The Parisian Eye

Run My City, a cultural jogging tour of Paris for guests at the Four Seasons Hotel George V

May 29, 2014 | Parisian Eye
Feeling ever so proud after a 1 hour run !
In their quest to offer guests the best of Paris in all aspects, the Four Seasons Hotel George V has launched « Run My City » in a series of surprising and refreshing Parisian experiences. 
After making them discover the art of floral arrangement with none other than Jeff Leatham, and penetrate the hotel’s secretly kept and priceless cellar, guests are now treated to a whole new experience and different approach to the exploration of Paris.

With « Run My City », anyone staying at the Four Seasons Hotel George V can now join a team of the hotel managers every Tuesday for a 9 kilometer run (or walk), taking them through the most iconic Parisian landmarks.
First, I had to check Jeff’s latest lobby arrangements
Soon, we were off, running by the recently re-opened Musée Galliera 
Pretty sun light over Parisian buildings 🙂

Last Tuesday, I joined a cheerful
group of the hotel staff for the run : the best way to see what it was all
about, and why it starts at 6.45am. 

As soon as we started off, I felt the
pleasure of running through the city as it wakes up, before the agitation
starts… And, well, seing the sun rise over the Eiffel Tower, along the Seine,
in the beautiful Tuileries gardens, over the Louvre and finally up the Champs
Elysees. Definitely an experience I will remember as a Parisian, I can only guess what a souvenir it must be for tourists discovering the city for the first time !
We ran down to the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero 
Alond the Seine, with the Grand Palais in the background
Leaving the Tuileries garden to run past the Concorde, and soon up the Champs Elysees

Like Jeff Leatham’s floral class and
the wine tasting, « Run My City » is free of charge for guests at the
Four Seasons Hotel George V… A great example of hospitality reinvention and
innovation in a city where the hotel scene is being reshaped !
The hotel was in sight after over an hour
Of coarse, we had a breakfast of champions…
… Well deserved in the marble courtyard 😉
Perfect to admire Jeff’s flowers yet again, before next time !
