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.
