The Monaco Marathon boasts one of the most scenic and the most affordable marathons in the country. By entering, you’re also helping a good cause, with at least 75% of your ‘entry fee’ going to charity. Any amount donated over and above the minimum entry fee will be donated to our local charities in full.

The idea of the event is to break down the barriers to participation and give everyone a good chance to compete or complete a full marathon 42.2km running/walking event.

The event boasts both a solo full marathon run or walk option, and for those with a little less confidence, you can enter as a two-person relay and do approximately a half marathon each or get together with some mates and enter a four-person team.
