Lagos hosts half-marathon on May 12

A fun-filled day of physical activity is promised for the Lagos ‘Meia Maratona Internacional’ (half-marathon) which will be held on Sunday, May 12.

The event is organised by the Olímpico Clube de Lagos and will feature a half-marathon, a mini-marathon and walk.

The 21km half-marathon is open to athletes over the age of 20 and is described as a “competitive race”, while the 5km mini-marathon is a more light-hearted and less physically demanding race that will be open to anyone aged 16 or older. The 5km walk is open to everyone.

All events will begin at 9.30am in front of the Hotel Marina Club in Lagos.

“This event aims to be a unique running experience in Portugal,” organisers say, adding that the routes will include some of the main landmarks of Lagos such as the marina drawbridge and the Ponta da Piedade beauty spot.
