Longchamp Racecourse

Longchamp Paris is the official racecourse of Prix de L’arc Triomphe. The spectacular course provides racegoers with new and elegant stands, due to the renovations from 2016-2018, by the architect Dominique Perrault.

From 2016-2018 the Prix de L’arc Triomphe was at the stunning Chantilly racecourse.


The Racecourse Renovation in 2018

Before the renovations, Longchamp main horse area was 57 hectares and over 46 starting posts. The capacity of the racecourse was up to 50,000 horse racing attendants.

From April 8, 2018, the awaited new Longchamp Paris was complete. The new racecourse now has a capacity of 60,000 racegoers and grew from 57 hectares to 60. The entire rebuild cost €150 million.

The Arc and Longchamp

The first Arc race was in Longchamp in 1920 and won by a 3-year old colt. Besides from the mentioned renovations from 2016-2018, all the Prix de L’arc Triomphe races were at Longchamp, even in World War 2.
