Its mountainous topography make this race a challenge for any runner, but the truth is a tour in which you can appreciate the city, its green landscapes, its buildings that show the history of its development and enjoy its spring weather.
The race is endorsed by the IAAF and it is qualifying for the Marathon of Bostón, whether you are encouraged to run any of the versions offered you are destined to keep coming every year for the atmosphere of joy and organization that is breathed in this sporting event .

All distances leave from the Parque de las Luces or Cisneros what was once the city’s market square; a space where you find the EPM library, Carré and Vásquez building and the 300 structures that provide shade day and night.
This magical place lends itself to athletes doing their warm-up exercises before and after the race, since we always return to the same place.
The Medellín marathon involves several municipalities of the Medellín Metropolitan Area, as Envigado and Sabaneta join the party so that this mythical distance can be taken so that the runners can achieve their proposed times and meet the objectives.
The Medellin half marathon is the distance with the most registered during the years that the race has been carried out. It is just like the full distance allows you to enjoy the city, the people that come to cheer, the architecture and the weather that make this race a party like no other.
This is the ideal challenge for those who are about to run a marathon or is that space where a complete marathon is prepared depending on the calendar of each runner.
In addition to being the space where people who love running converge.
