Basically (exepct 2 areas) Paris is very flat. I'd also go for the parcs as indicated. An alternative is the Île Saint-Germain, as small island west of Paris

Check out the Parc des Buttes Chaumont. Really interesting park with fewer tourists than most other city parks. Also try the Bois de Boulogne but only during daylight hours. It's always had a bit of a reputation for being dangerous after dark. Happy running!

Last time I was in Paris, I woke up very early and went for a run through the streets of Ile Saint-Louis. If you try to go in the daytime or evening, the streets will be packed with tourists because of Berthillon, but in the morning it's quiet and desolate with lot to occupy you. Be warned: short track. If you're looking for a 5k, this isn't it :)

Understandable. Good luck finding your perfect running place. I think the suggest above is a great one, and there are so many parks. The area surrounding the Tower too.

A great place to run in the center of Paris is Jardin des Tuileries. On the sunday, roads near the Seine are closed to vehicles, so you could enjoy them for a run ;)

A place I really like is Canal Saint Martin go to Metro Jaurès to start a flat run up or down the hill . On weekend mornings the place is a running destination for Parisinas, hardly anyone else there.

A bit more congested but a more challenging and scenic run (biggest incline hills in a Parisian park) is Parc des Buttes Chaumont.

Both are a bit far away from the main Paris destinations but that means few tourists or non runners to deal with.

Enjoy!

I think the Promenade plantée which utilizes an abandoned elevated railway would be a good choice. It begins not far from theSci 6 Place de la Bastille and extends for about 2 mi to the Bd Périphérique to the east. It is similar to The High Line in NYC but opened in 1994.
