The Marathon des Alpes-Maritimes is the second most important marathon in France after Paris. This year, the marathon celebrates its 12th Anniversary and will take place on 3 November 2019, starting from the Promenade des Anglais and finishing in Cannes.
Between palm trees and the beautiful scenery of the Mediterranean, runners are welcome to take a sportive break on the French Riviera. This new edition of the Marathon offers competitors to choose between different options: either to run the full 42 km from Nice to Cannes, two times 20 km or only 20 km. Teams are also welcomed on the Promenade des Anglais as a relay organised with 3, 4, 5 or 6 runners.
Indeed, the Marathon des Alpes Maritimes will begin on the legendary Promenade des Anglais in Nice and will end on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. Around 13,000 runners are expected to experience this unique run along the coast of the Côte d'Azur. This year the marathon established a new partnership with outfitter brand Salomon. All competitors will receive a bag full of goodies made in French Riviera: tee-shirts, backpacks and a medal on the finish line.
Registration for the marathon is now open! Why not take a break on the French Riviera before winter settles for good and challenge yourself on this very special run.
If you want to be part of this extraordinary experience, it’s time to start training slowly until the D-Day. Finally, when it comes to transport after the finish line, shuttles will be available from each of the different finish lines: in Villeneuve-Loubet and in Cannes. A exhibition village on the Place Masséna in Nice is also open from 31st October to the 2nd November to welcome all participants before and after the event.
