The Seychelles Eco-Friendly Marathon is held on the last Sunday of February every year. Runners from across the globe descend on the Seychelles to take part in this scenic event. Participants can enjoy the natural beauty of Mahe Island as they run, walk or jog along the beaches, and onlookers cheer from the side-lines or from their sunbathing spots. The race starts at Beau Vallon Beach and follows the peninsula round to Victoria before turning to follow the same route back to the finish. In addition to the full marathon, there is a half marathon and both a 5km and 10km race.
