Two Target Ovarian Cancer fundraisers running and waving

Lisbon Half Marathon

35,000 runners flock to Portugal’s capital every year for the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon and Vodafone 10k, creating a festival of sport and making this Portugal’s biggest running event.

The course follows the shores of the River Tagus, with an unforgettable start crossing the impressive 25 de Abril bridge and a finish overlooked by the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos monument. The race attracts athletes from all walks of life and at a range of ability levels, from elites to first-time runners.

The EDP Lisbon Half Marathon promises runners a great chance at a PB, with a course that has twice played host to the half marathon world record, in 2000 and 2018.

The SuperHalfs series

The Lisbon Half Marathon is part of the SuperHalfs series. All of the SuperHalfs events are World Athletics’ Gold Label races or are run on World Athletics (IAAF) World Championship courses. They are certified by AIMS or have been awarded a 5 Star Road Race standard by European Athletics.

SuperHalfs is a new event series launched by the organisers of the Cardiff, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Prague and Valencia Half Marathons. Each event city is an iconic destination that makes for great experiences, great pictures and great memories for runners and their family and friends. It’s a race that starts in one city and ends in another, allowing you to combine your love of running and travel in one unforgettable experience!  You can register for just one half marathon or become a Super Runner and sign up to all five.

You will have 36 months from your first event to complete the series – you can choose what order to complete the series.
