The Lisbon Marathon is attracting more and more runners each year as its reputation extends as one of the best marathons in the world, primarily because of the beautiful city in which it is run but also because of the high level of organisation. The Lisbon Marathon used to be held in the month of December, but from 2013 the Marathon has been rebranded as the EDP Rock 'n' Roll Lisbon Marathon and move to June.

Crowds gather to cheer the runners on as they prepare to start the full marathon or the half marathon, which starts in Cascais, runs along the Atlantic and through the beautiful gardens of Oeiras, then back along the banks of the Tagus river, touring the heart of old Lisbon.

Date: 20 June 2015
