Air France partners with New York Road Runners' First Ever France Run

Air France said it will be the lead partner of New York Road Runners´ (NYRR) first-ever France Run on Saturday, August 29, 2015 in Central Park.

The France Run is inspired by the dynamic French culture of running and Air France´s history of providing its passengers with the unique opportunity to fuel their passion for the sport through its Flying Blue Running Club.

The 8K (approximately a five-mile distance) run will begin at 8 a.m., and will be followed by a kid´s race for children ages 2-12 years old at 9:30 a.m. A festival showcasing the best of French culture will be set up throughout the event, open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The France Run is a qualifier for the TCS New York City Marathon through the NYRR 9+1 Program, but visitors don´t have to run to enjoy the French festival on race day.
