Lisbon Marathon 2024

There is a fantastic half marathon in Lisbon every year. Would you rather run the double distance, that is, a full marathon? That is possible if you register for the Lisbon marathon, which normally takes place annually in October.

The Lisbon marathon is one of the nicest marathon races you can run. It starts in Cascais and you run next to the sea all along the way until you reach the finish line at Praça do Comércio in Lisbon. That is 100% awesome, and it is a marathon you will remember for a lifetime. You can travel with train from Cais di Sodre in Lisbon. You can travel for free if you show your registration for the marathon.

Besides the full marathon, there is also a chance to run a half-marathon and a mini-marathon on the competition day. The mini-marathon has a distance of 8,5km. The half-marathon and the mini-marathon start from the famous Vasco da Gama Bridge in Lisbon.

Is this an event for you?

There are many fantastic marathons worldwide, but the marathon in Lisbon is one of the nicest of them all. But, if you don’t have experience with running long distances, you should consider running the mini-marathon or the half-marathon before registering for the marathon. If your body isn’t used to running such distances, you need many months to prepare for a marathon (some say years). As a result, you should instead run a shorter distance and enjoy it, than to try something that will turn into a painful experience.

It is beneficial to find some running partners with whom you can prepare and find someone with more experience whom you can ask for help. This will also give you useful information about your condition and whether or not you can run a half-marathon or even a full marathon!

No matter what, this is a fantastic event and we hope you will come to Lisbon to be a part of the Lisbon marathon, in one way or another!
