The Marrakech marathon and semi marathon is one of the most special experiences you can have. The royal and magic city of Marrakech in the south of Morocco offers an extraordinary setting to run your (semi) Marathon. Streets are decorated with palm and olive trees. A nice contrast with the red clay of the medieval city wall and in the background a blue sky with the white snow capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains. The Marrakech Marathon is well known for runners from all over the world. The circuit is one of the fastest in the world. Fastest time in 2010 was 2:09:52 for the Ethiopian Girma Beyene GEZAHN. For the semi marathon the fastest time was1:02:00.
In January climate is ideal. In the morning it is even fresh while temperature is slowly climbing towards 20 degrees Celsius; ideal for running.
Morocco's marathon du Marrakech means running your (semi) marathon in a different culture and country ...?? This is already very special.
But if you go there you should take a little more time to visit the magic city of Marrakech and the mountains which are so close.
