Hearty CONGRATULATIONS and A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took part in the 14th running of the Marathon International du Beaujolais, which was really extra-terrestrial. An event:

  • where the atmosphere was fantastic all weekend long,
  • with a record-breaking number of 17,000 runners in the four races,
  • where the Pasta Party was a storming success and a total of 3,000 people enjoyed the festivities on Saturday night and Sunday,
  • that was more international than ever, with runners from the five continents and 70 countries,
  • that saw us return to the top ten marathons in France, with 2,178 finishers,
  • that saw new record-breaking performances for men and women in the marathon, with 2h50’38’’ for Maria Berezhnaya from Russia, and 2h24’43’’ for Sébastien Spehler from Alsace.

A big THANK YOU also to:

  • our 1,200 volunteers who offered such a warm welcome to all,
  • our public and private partners for their loyal support and involvement.

We hope you are all recovering well, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year and look forward to seeing you on Saturday 23 November 2019 for the 15th running of the Marathon International du Beaujolais!
