Mexico City Marathon 2016

Run through the main avenues in Mexico City and see very important monuments along the way.  Around 35,000 runners coming from 60 different countries will be part of this great race.  The race is for Men and Women, 18 and up.  Mexico City is 6,500 feet over the ocean, that’s why you can test yourself and finish with a great feeling of accomplishment.  The course has been officially measured and certified by the Mexican Athletics Federation (FMAA) and the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) and Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).

The day before the race you can have an afternoon/evening course tour, where you can see the course you will run the next day. The race day, at evening, we will give you the option to transfer you to “Plaza Garibaldi” where you can celebrate your race along with Mariachis, food and beverages.  The third day in the morning, you have the option to pick the tour to Xochimilco (floating gardens) and the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Second religious temple most visited in the world) or Teotihuacan Pyramids (impressive size) and Coyoacan (beautiful and pleasant area in the city).  In the afternoon we will have a city sightseeing tour.
