Situated half way between Paris and the châteaux of the Loire Valley, Eure-et-Loir is a department that is clearly focused on sport.
Eure-et-Loir is delighted to play host to the start of Paris-Tours for the fifth year in a row.
Since 2009, the renowned race has been the perfect excuse for the General Council and the start town to organise a wide range of activities. Following in the footsteps of Chartres, La Loupe, Voves and Châteauneuf-en-Thymerais, the 107th edition of Paris-Tours in Authon-du-Perche is an event not to be missed! The ever-increasing public will be able to take full advantage of the activities organised on Saturday 12th October highlighting this cycling event’s very festive spirit. As the principal partner of sporting activities on a daily basis, the General Council supports clubs and promotes sport for everyone, through its financial assistance to towns and groups of municipalities, in order to develop sports facilities throughout the region.
As well as creating sports facilities and supporting many clubs and organisations, the urban community is also a partner of Paris-Tours.
The association is almost natural here, where we think sport is vital for well-being and development.
Therefore, the urban community backs many sports competitors in numerous disciplines, which it helps and for whom it builds new, modern facilities.
The objective is to allow the urban area's 284, 885 inhabitants to freely enjoy their favourite sports, support their teams at the highest level and take part in major events, of which the classic Paris-Tours is the jewel. Tour(s) plus is proud to be associated with this popular sport and international event since 2004.
