Join Maratón de La Paz - Bolivia

The La Paz Marathon is an effort to keep the flame of the marathon alive in the capital of Bolivia.

This time is also a charity run for the hearth operation of Rafael.

We run also virtual. Find it on the virtual tab.

The city of La Paz, recently called City of Heaven, has a very special topography. It is built in a valley, has therefore very few flat streets and almost all of them are important. The design of the route goes along the slopes of this valley. 42.2 km are within a rugged topography and also a route that has minimal vehicular traffic. 

The marathon starts at 3570 m and finishes at 3280m, but has to pass highest points of 3950 and 3930 meters, with a total descent of 1390 meters. 

It is basically a self supported race. The route is marked with stickers and paint but it is not closed to traffic. You can also download a GPS map from the official website.
At certain points there are manned checkpoints.

There is no assistance from city authorities but police forces are helpful.

This is definitely a serious adventure!
