Marathon Calendar : Choose Your Favorite Marathon

18 Flares Filament.io Made with Flare More Info'> 18 Flares ×

This marathon calendar provides you with an overview of the most beautiful marathons in the world. You can virtually run a marathon in every country, and in most countries there are several good options.

When you choose your marathon, think about:

  • Timing: when will you be ready?
  • Weather: what kind of weather do you prefer to train and race in?
  • Size of marathon: do you like a race with many runners and a cheering crowd or do you prefer the opposite?
  • Financial situation: did you save enough for your marathon trip or do you have a tight budget?
  • Marathon goals: is this your first marathon and do you prefer a ‘fun’ race, or are you an experienced runner who wants to beat his PR?

Take these factors into account when deciding about the best marathon for you.

If you are interested in running a marathon in the United States I would recommend you to read my top 10 marathons in the United States article.

An ever-extending marathon guide full of great marathons around the world is definitely worth reading as well.
