Now is the time to experience South America’s most beautiful city and run along its famous coastline at the Rio de Janeiro Marathon. The name of the city is synonymous with sun, fun and rhythm of the sensuous samba. Few places on earth can match the hospitality, natural charm, beauty and excitement of this city. Now it's your turn to discover it!
The 26.2 course weaves through city streets starting in Receiro and finishing in Flamengo on a point-to-point course. With the Serra do Mar Mountains rising inland from Rio’s fabulous shoreline, this scenery with oceans to your right and mountains to your left, makes this event one of the more picturesque marathons in the world. In addition to the race, there is so much to explore in and around the area. We also highly recommend joining the optional two-night extension to the UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature – Iguassu (Iguazu) Falls.
Special thanks to Ann and Jane - they genuinely care. I can't wait for my next Marathon Tour.
Wonderful course along the beaches and by the sea, very good organization from Marathon Tours, fantastic food in Brazil, very good restaurant recommendations on your list.
