Marathon des Alpes Maritimes Nice-Cannes

Nice to Cannes in about four hours

Featured in: | Updated

This marathon takes place in the cooler month of November, starting in Nice and heading over a slightly varied route each year to the finish in the glamorous centre of Cannes. 

This is a hugely popular race. Alongside the full marathon, there are also several relay options giving you the chance to run a half marathon as a pair or a distance of around 11km if you are a group of 3.

Enjoy a weekend of sea, palm trees, snow-covered mountain views and French Riviera autumn sun!
