Get yourself fit for the  Lisbon Marathon! Or, like I prefer, catch some athletic and very good looking jubilant runners ( Dan Lixandru (l) and his friend, from Bucharest, Rumania, December 2008) crossing the finishing line at Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square).

The Half Marathon (March 22, 2010) is a complementary race of the Lisbon Marathon for all those which do not have an adequate preparation for the mythical 42 kilometres and do not want to miss the event. The race starts in Almada on the south side of the 25 de Abril bridge and there’s also a mini-marathon.
