The Lisbon Marathon continues to grow its reputation as one of the world's best marathons. Attracting more and more runners each year, both the marathon and the half-marathon have joined Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series. Crowds gather to cheer runners as they depart from the town of Cascais and run along an impressive Atlantic coast, through the gorgeous gardens of Oeiras, then back along the banks of the Tagus River. The circuit is celebrated for its scenic route through the heart of Lisbon, with competitors afforded glimpses of Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém.
