Run For It: Marathons With A View
Whether you are a professional athlete or an amateur running for a cause, there’s nothing like the runner’s high that you experience during and after a marathon. A great view only adds to the high. Here are a few marathons with spellbinding views to look forward to in 2013:
Great Wall Marathon, 18 May - Looking for a challenge? Try running the full marathon up the Great Wall of China. Or even the shorter 7.5km Fun Run.
2013 Comrades Marathon, 2 June - The Comrades Marathon—hosted since 1921 in memory of soldiers who braved the climate of the South African equatorial lands during the war—is a test on the physical endurance of a human being.
Himalyan Marathon, 3 May - If you’re a trekking enthusiast, the Himalayan Marathon might be more up your alley.
Auroville Marathon, 3 February - About 10km from Pondicherry, the Auroville Marathon brings marathoners of various nationalities together every year. Running through the small town and its forests, alternating between dirt trails and tarmac, the entire route covers 13.8km.
Marathon du Medoc, 7 September - The mostly fun-filled marathon has a cut off time of 6 hours and 30 minutes, with an average completion time around five hours.
Venice Marathon, 27 October - The route is flat and easy, covering the backwater city for a runner's average of four hours, making for a different sightseeing experience altogether.
Athens Classic Marathon, 10 November - Head to the Greek city of Athens, to where it all began.
City2Surf, 11 August - Along the way, the atmosphere is encouraging; with live bands, DJs, hoards of hooting and cheering crowds, and cheerleaders. In 2012, the average race time was 1 hour and 15 minutes.
