About the half marathon in Lagos:
Looking for more information about the yearly Half Marathon in Lagos? Let us help!
This fantastic race starts and finishes in the modern Marina of the city. Along with the half marathon, there is also a run of 5,5km, named as mini-marathon, and a walk.
The Lagos Half Marathon is one of the flattest half marathons of Portugal, so it’s rather fast. The route is very nice, passing by the city center and having some nice sights over the beaches of Lagos.
Many people have been contacting me about when the Half Marathon in Lagos takes place this year. Well, I’m not part of the organization but as I really like the Half Marathon in Lagos, I’m happy to help:
This year, the Malf Marathon in Lagos is on May 6th. It usually takes place around the first Sunday of the month of May every year.
About how to enrol, please be patient, races in Portugal usually only open registrations close to race date. The inscriptions for the half marathon in the Algarve are very affordable, starting at €5 and increasing slightly as the date of the event gets closer. If you’re staying in another city in the Algarve and would like to stay the night before the race in Lagos, the Marina Club Hotel has special packages for runners, starting at €25 for Saturday night (includes bib number but not breakfast).
Please note that beside being one of the flattest halfs of Portugal, this race can also be one of the hottest halfs! So, please be careful and be prepared for the heat.
If you’re on holidays in the Algarve, why not making your holidays running holidays and participate in a half marathon in Portugal, in Lagos?
