Some of the most spectacular sceneries that you can experience can be found running around the European countryside. Regardless if you are a newbie or a seasoned running veteran, there is the perfect event waiting for you.

If you are a history buff, the Athens Marathon, born over 2500 years ago, is the perfect nostalgic run to participate, just to say you did. For the adventurer, the Brixen Dolomiten Marathon has you racing to a spectacular 360° panoramic view on top of the mountain, or the Plitvice Lakes Marathon will have you experiencing the bluest waters on earth.

Most of the pre-run event is done in the dark through the city streets. For someone who is looking for the challenging conditions of the European winter, the Marathon de Funchal is the perfect fast and flat race to partake in.nbHeld in at the end of January, if you can make it twice around the coastline without freezing, you will be in an elite class of runners worldwide.
