Rated one of the 10 best marathons in the world!

The Mazatlán Pacific Marathon is the annual destination for 10,000 runners, including many of the world’s best.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Maratón Pacífico Mazatlán has become one of the most important international long distance running events held everywhere.

The full and half-marathons are limited to 10,000 participants, but this celebration of running draws many times that number to our city, this year to be held over the December 1-2 weekend.

This great event is inclusive, offering events for the differently-abled and children of all ages. It provides a multitude of running events and entertainment for everyone!

Children as young as 4 years old can participate in running events, 70 meters is the distance for 4 and 5 years old. Distances obviously grow progressively longer with age.

Maratón Pacífico also includes events for athletes with disabilities, allowing them to fully experience the marathon. There are two different categories for them: a 10 K (Saturday) and a 21k (Sunday).
