What can you expect?maraton_05

Over 16,000 runners on all the distances, a fantastic atmosphere and a celebration of running.

We’ll take care of you! How?

There will be a joint warm up before the race so you don’t start with cold muscles.

We want to make sure you have plenty of space to run, despite the high turnout, so we’ll stagger the start with runners leaving from separate zones at 5 to 6 minute intervals. You can find more on this in the race info.

There will be refreshments every 4 to 5 kilometers and there will of course be continuous medical supervision along the course.

Pace runners will help you hit your desired tempo.

Having fun is just as important as running. So we’ll maintain several musical points along the course for your entertainment.
