Paris-Camembert is a one-day race in France, celebrated for its challenging course that traverses the picturesque regions from Magnanville to Livarot Pays d'Auge, usually held in April. The winner of Paris-Camembert traditionally receives his body weight in Camembert cheese.

History of Paris-Camembert

The Paris-Camembert race, initially called Paris-Vimoutiers, has a storied history dating back to its first run in 1906, organized by the Vimoutiers municipality, close to the Camembert region. The event, officially reorganized in 1934 by VC Vimonastérien alongside local community stakeholders, marks the year from which the race's continuous edition count began, excluding the wartime interruptions of 1942-1944. The name transitioned to Paris-Camembert in 1943, reflecting its deep ties to the region famed for the iconic cheese. Historically starting near Paris and traversing over 200 kilometers, the race's starting point shifted in 2015 to Pont-Audemer in Normandy.
