Doesn’t it sound awesome to run a half marathon in the Portuguese capital? The half marathon in Lisbon is an annual event, normally arranged in March every year. Would you like to discover Lisbon differently? This is your chance!
A half marathon is a wonderful way to get to know a city. Not only is it an excuse to visit Lisbon, but you can run in your own tempo, look at the surroundings, and have a great time.

Keep on running 5-10 kilometers a couple of times a week, and then from time to time, boost the distance to 15km and then boost it to 21km.
