Rio de Janeiro Marathon

When: 14 June 2020

The Rio de Janeiro Marathon 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 the course one of the more picturesque marathons in the world. Runners see parts of famous neighborhoods like Praia da Reserva, Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana, Botafogo and Flamengo along the way. 

For runners seeking a lesser distance there is also a half-marathon event to enter. Crowds in excess of 100,000 turn out to watch and support runners.
