Best events in Cuba
This sporting event held in November every year, attracts an attendance of between 1 and 2 thousand walkers and runners, including locals and international athletes from nearly 30 different countries. The marathon route goes through some of the more scenic areas of Old Havana, Central Havana, and Vedado. Participation is offered for distances of full-marathon (2 laps), half-marathon, 5km, and 10km. Prizes are awarded in male, female, and handicapped categories. One day before the Marathon, the internationally recognized running project Maracuba takes place. It mobilizes over 1 million participants and is said to be the largest running event. Simultaneously participants of all ages from hundreds of communities, remote areas, and mountain regions take off for the 3000 and 4000 meter tracks, becoming part of a memorable running experience.
Each year we have a Cuban Adventures team that participates in the Havana Marathon. Anyone is welcome to join us. Included is a team celebration lunch and we donte $1 for every km the team runs to CeDA - a Cuban Animal Welfare charity.
