Freedom Marathon is a marathon held annually on a part of the coast of Normandy, from Courseulles-sur-Mer to the Caen Memorial since 1988. In remembrance of d-day, theruns is close to the June 6 date.
With 30 editions, the Marathon de la Liberté is the leading event of Les Courants de la Liberté, on the legendary distance of 42.195km. Tribute to History, Le Marathon de la Liberté is sometimes called the D-Day Landings Marathon and is also known as the Caen Marathon. It has been awarded the FFA national label. Its course is one of the most beautiful ones in France.
During this race, personal endeavour is coupled with the discovery of the major milestones of the Normandy Landings (Juno and Sword Beaches, the Casino d’Ouistreham, Pegasus Bridge, etc.), adding a historical reverence to this intense sporting challenge.
