If you are looking for new challenges for the second half of the current year, you cannot miss some of the most important marathons in different locations so you can choose the one you like the most.
We know that getting ready for a marathon is not always easy. Well, it’s never as easy as it may seem to “run and run” like a racing horse.
While we all run or try to run sometime in our lives, professional running is not for everyone. It requires a lot of strength, training, joy, but above all, desire to run. Besides it is a sport where you need higher stamina than for example, soccer, NFL football or tennis. You need to feel the passion to perform this activity.
Not counting the beautiful places that we cross while we go trotting, many of us immerse ourselves in the maelstrom of our own race against ourselves and against the clock.
Therefore, we are going to show you some of the most emblematic marathons in the world that you cannot miss. Here we go!
