RACE ROUTE

Le parcours du Marathon est conçu en deux boucles, il permet de concentrer les spectateurs, et donc d’assurer une ambiance animée et des encouragements constants ! Rapide grâce au terrain quasiment plat et au double-départ séparant les coureurs en deux groupes au départ (regroupement à 610 m.), il est propice aux records. Des animations rythment la course : 12 orchestres sont installés sur le parcours (tous les 2 km).
New 2022 : after a 5 years break, the marathon's race route comes back to the old port ! During the last kilometer, runners will take Dupaty street, pass by the city hall and then Maubec and Duperré docks, going along the old port.
