START TIME: 7:00AM
ENTRY: Marathon Tours & Travel will secure race entries. A race entry application will be sent to each registered runner. The entry is an additional fee.
COURSE: The race starts in front of the Capitolio on the edge of Old Havana. After one mile, it reaches the port and follows the Malecon for about three miles along the water. It then turns into the main city through many neighborhoods and past historical sites such as the National Sports Stadium and Revolution Square. The marathon is two loops of this route. The course is somewhat traffic-free and mostly flat with a few hills. The circuit of the marathon and half-marathon is certified by the AIMS/IAFF. The 5K and 10K course are along the Malecon. Please note that the 10K is out and back; the 5K is out only and requires you to walk back to the start line or hotel. Marathon Tours & Travel recommends the Half-Marathon or the 10K for those undecided on the distance.
