Lisbon Half Marathon postponed

The 33rd edition of the Lisbon Half Marathon has been postponed by one week, from the 10th to the 17th of March, due to the call for legislative elections, following the dissolution of the Assembly of the Republic, announced today the organisation.

“In view of the decision of the President of the Republic, communicated on 9 November, to call legislative elections for March 10, 2024, the Maratona Clube de Portugal is forced to postpone the EDP Half Marathon of Lisbon and Vodafone 10K for one week, for March 17, 2024”, reads the statement from the organising club.

The Lisbon Half Marathon is one of the world's main distance races, holding the world record since 2021 when Ugandan Jacob Kiplimo completed it in 57.31 minutes, but it is also a relevant popular race, allowing approximately 30 thousand people to cross the April 25th Bridge, among participants in this race or in the mini-marathon.

Also according to Maratona Clube de Portugal, Saturday's races are also postponed to the following week, to 16 March, and registrations made are automatically transferred to the new dates.
