Club Paris 2024 has launched a new initiative for runners, offering race entries for the mass-participation public marathon to run alongside the elite marathon at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Its "10 Bibs for the Race of your Life" operation will give individuals an opportunity to compete in the race in just under four years.

This challenge will only be open to members of Club Paris 2024, with these groups aiming to provide opportunities and improve the fitness of members in the build-up to the 2024 Games.

Points will be accumulated by playing sports, with users who pick up 1,000 points being eligible for the draw - which is scheduled for early December.

In this draw, 10 bibs will be awarded to those who reach the target and enter the draw under current COVID-19 restrictions.

These restrictions in France currently allow the public to have an hour of activity once a day with a one kilometre radius of your home.

Cycling gives individuals 2.5 points per kilometre, while walking gives users five points per kilometre and running giving the users 10 points per kilometre.

Other activity - such as home workouts - award one point per minute of activity.

A mini online racing game allows you to earn five points per race won too.

The Club Paris 2024 team will also reward up to 2,500 points to those with the best answers on their home workouts during the pandemic.

The Paris 2024 Olympics is scheduled to run from July 26 to August 11 2024, with the schedule yet to be announced for athletics, which will feature the marathon events.

The marathon course finish will be held at the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.
