Half Marathon of Oporto

On September 22, go to Oporto by train.

The 13rd Edition of this Half Marathon has an incredible landscape, along the Douro River, crossing the emblematic ‘Ponte D. Luis I’ which connects the neighbouring cities: Oporto and Vila Nova de Gaia.

There will be two races: a race of 21 km, for federated and non-federated athletes and a non-competitive 6 km-walk open to all participants, with no age limit.


CP Services: Intercidades | Regional and InterRegional | Oporto urban trains

The race will take place at the Oporto’s Marginal, starting at ‘Ponte do Freixo’.

We recommend the Oporto-Campanhã Station, which is a 1.3-km walk from the starting point of the marathon.
