This event was first held in 2008 and became an immediate success attracting more than 14,000 runners. The Cote d'Azur Marathon Nice-Cannes is now the second biggest marathon in France, topped only by the marathon in Paris.
The 42,195 km course is a stunning seaside route, from the Promenade des Anglais in Nice to the mythical Croisette of Cannes. In mild temperatures with the sun shining, palm trees and snow capped mountains, this coastal route will pass through chic seaside resorts such as Saint Laurent-du-Var, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Villeneuve-Loubet, Antibes Juan-les-Pins and Vallauris Golfe-Juan.
Music bands will be present all along the 42,195 km thanks to the participation of the 7 cities associated to the event.
The course gently winds up through rows of pine trees and beautiful stucco mansions before dropping down to the finish in Cannes.
