Welcome to the Marathon de Bordeaux Métropole
The Marathon de Bordeaux is a celebration of running and history in one of Europe's most alluring regions. The race takes place entirely at night within the city limits of Bordeaux, France. Runners of both the full and half courses start at at 20h00 (8:00 pm), in front of The Palais de la Bourse.
Both the full and half marathon courses are closed completely to traffic, and lead runners along the Garonne river, through the center of Bordeaux. They traverse the sprawling vineyards, and returns through the historic heart of the city, passing by places of rich heritage. The finish line is located between the Place de la Bourse and the Miror d'Eau- the world's largest reflecting pool, covering 3,450 square meters.
By proposing several race formats, the event is also intended to cater for all tastes: the legendary 42.195-kilometers race will be completed by a half-marathon and a relay marathon.
The Marathon of Bordeaux Métropole hopes to unite a greater number of people on a magic night, in a festive and friendly atmosphere. Don't wait any longer, join us !
