French Riviera Marathon

action from the French Riviera Marathon


On 4 November when British skies are leaden and the sun has disappeared from view, there's a unique marathon between sea and palm trees with a glorious snow-covered mountain backdrop and it's only a short flight away.  

The 2018 French Riviera Marathon is calling your name and promising perfect running temperatures in the mid to high teens.  
Starting from the Promenade des Anglais in Nice and ending in the Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes near the iconic Festival Palace of the Cannes International Film Festival, French Riviera Marathon, now in its 11th year is second only to Paris in the French running calendar.
With cheap flights on the low cost carriers from most major UK cities and a wide range of accommodation options, a trip to the Côte d'Azur in November is way more affordable than you might think and there's a great option for couples and teams of two with the two leg relay.  There's also a team option of six in the relay so grab your friends, make a weekend of it and set yourself up for the forthcoming festive madness with a never to be forgotten trip?
What are you waiting for? You can save €10.00 on your entry fee by signing up before midnight on Friday 31 August so don't delay!
