Description

Called the ‘Marathon de Monaco et des Riviera’, it is a truly international race in the Mediterranean, as contestants run along the coastline of altogether three countries. Starting and finishing in Monaco, runners can admire its stunning beauty for 10 kilometers, enjoy spectacular views of the Cote d’Azur in the French towns of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Menton for 26 kilometers, and run another 6 kilometers in Ventimiglia, Italy. No wonder, that many run with their cameras, stopping to take pictures, adding a few extra minutes to their finish time (the time limit is 5:30). Despite the scenery, it is a very hard, hilly route, not recommended for first-timers. There is a 10 km route, which stays within the borders of Monaco. The water stations should rather be called ‘buffets’, as they not only have drinks, fruit, sugar cubes, but delicious pastries as well.
