Memorial of Caen
Often described as the D-Day Landings Marathon, the Marathon de la Liberte passes close to many of the sites associated with the Allied invasion of 1944. Its coastal and rural location also earns it being described as one the most beautiful courses in France.
The Cean Marathon is point-to-point, with the start line at Courseulles sur Mer to the finish line at the Memorial of Caen. The race is fairly flat, but even with 15km of the route being coastal, there are some hills to battle. That said the race receives many good reviews, particularly for taking in many beautiful and historical locations along the way.
