Having a Paris hostel as somewhere to relax after taking part in the Paris-Versailles Grande Classique, which can be run or walked, could be the ideal post-race tonic for travellers involved in the event on September 26th.
It costs €30 (£25) per competitor to register with entry closing on September 12th, but those who do so will be able to start the spectacle at the foot of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
The capacity for the amount of participants is 22,000 so individuals thinking of booking might like to do it sooner rather than later, which goes for their hostel in Paris too.
And it could be worthwhile as runners and walkers will experience a plethora of city sights along the way.
These include the Issy Les Moulineaux by the banks of the River Seine, as well as the Palace of Versailles and Chaville, situated at the bottom of the descent of the chapel funds.
This year, competitors will be given a chip along with their number which, when crossed with one of their shoe laces, can record their time of departure and finish in the race.
And the organisers have stated that it does not have to be returned, so participants are allowed to keep it as a souvenir.
In addition, four hydration points will be provided throughout the 16-kilometre course, which should keep people from popping back to their cheap hostel in Paris for a quick beverage.
