Now heading into its fifth year, the Monaco Marathon boasts one of the most scenic, and not to mention the most affordable marathons in the country. By entering, you’re also helping a good cause, with 100% of your $20 ‘entry fee’ going to charity.
The idea of the event is to break down the barriers to participation and give everyone a good chance to compete or complete a full marathon running event (42.2km).
The event boasts both a full marathon run or walk option, and for those with a little less confidence, you can enter as a two-person relay and do a half marathon each or get together with some mates and enter a six-person team.
The basic philosophy is that lack of means shouldn’t be a barrier to entry & anyone who is willing to try & prepare themselves for this event is warmly invited to have a go. It’s not the Olympics, so the emphasis is on rewarding participation rather than winners. However winners will be acknowledged & rewarded in a small way & everyone who completes the solo marathon will receive a commemorative certificate. First time marathoners are particularly welcome & receive a special commemorative medal if they complete the distance! Times will be taken for everyone with results published online after the event.
Our aim is that no one goes home empty handed! So essentially LOW KEY, LOW COST, HIGH FUN!
