The previous editions of the Funchal Marathon were a success and the Madeira Athletics Association is now moving forward with preparations for the new edition to be held in January.
The Madeira Athletics Association (AARAM) promotes this important international sporting event. This sporting event consists of three main races, the Funchal Marathon, the Half Marathon and the Mini Marathon. Once again, this race will take place on a flat track, almost entirely on a closed circuit, with an attractive landscape, offering the perfect setting for a healthy competition between athletes of different nationalities.
Do not hesitate. Come to know the Pearl of the Atlantic by running the Funchal marathon, in a festive and fun atmosphere. Discover and enjoy Madeira Island during the race.
Chosen at the end of 2019 at the World Travel Awards as the best island destination in the world, Madeira awakens passions. This Portuguese archipelago located in the middle of the Atlantic does not fit the stereotype of a beach destination.
If you visit Madeira, do not expect to find endless beaches of fine sand and turquoise waters, but a beautiful volcanic island of small stone coves with multiple reasons to be visited.
The city of Funchal today differs greatly from that of yesteryear, known for its pirates and fennel fields. Now it has become a modern, cosmopolitan and rejuvenated city, famous for its luxurious restaurants, its good hotels, its excellent climate throughout the year and its incomparable natural beauty. In short, today it is known for its style and essence.
The city itself is located in a large natural basin, facing the Atlantic and surrounded by rugged mountains. It is located in the south of the island of Madeira, on the sunniest coast and amidst bananas and wonderful gardens, where flowers are cultivated throughout the year under the protection of emerald mountains. It is, therefore, a lush, green and quiet city. And one of the safest and cleanest cities in Europe and a place proud of itself. The perfectly cobbled streets of the center, together with the modern shopping areas, cafes, bars, restaurants and, of course, tourists, make Funchal an interesting and exciting city.
