The race is taking place in the historical heart of Lyon, real identity of the city. Starting from the biggest pedestrian square of Europe, athletes can observe from the Saône banks, the Fourvière hill, on which overlooks the majestic basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière.

Right in front of the Opera, the half-marathon is splitting from the 10K, to lead the way to the Rhône banks. Runners will then reach the Parc de la Tête d’Or, the biggest Park of the city which gathers both a botanical and a zoological garden.

The Relay Marathon consists of running the 42.195km of the classic marathon alongside marathon runners…but in a team, by dividing up the distances! Each team must be made up of 3 runners who will cover the different sections of the route on offer: the first one will run around 21 km, the second 13 km and the third one 8 km. A great opportunity to share the effort and the joys of competing with friends and/or family, whatever your level.
