Central America’s oldest Marathon is set to return to the streets of Panama City this December with the 38th running of the Panama City International Marathon. 

 

Originating as a relay competition between US Marines and Army personnel stationed in the Canal Zone in 1976, the event quickly gained popularity and eventually morphed into the Panama City International Marathon that is now enjoyed by thousands of runners every year. 

 

The Marathon route offers participants a spectacular Panamanian experience, taking in many of the city’s beautiful sites and famous attractions along the way. In addition to featuring Panama City’s iconic Av Balboa along the waterfront, runners will also take in the spectacular Bridge of the Americas, the truly unique Biomuseo and the Port of Balboa. 

Panama’s wonderful natural attractions will, of course, also be on show – with sun, sea, mountains and palm trees always there to give tired runners a much needed pick-me-up. 

 

Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay events are offered, with plenty of water and volunteers on hand to combat the ruthless Central American humidity which runners will certainly experience. 

 

Panama has a reputation as a blossoming tourist destination, and the Panama City International Marathon provides the perfect opportunity to experience one of Central America’s most exciting cities.
