Here are some top and famous marathon seasons which one should take part for once in their lifetime.
Napa Valley Marathon
Catering a smaller field than most, so only 2,300 racers are accepted annually in the Napa Valley Marathon which allows the runners some elbowroom. The route of the marathon runs along the Silverado Trail om the east side of the valley, and winds south form Calistoga down to Napa. The scenery is simply stunning, with views of the valley, fruit trees and dormant vineyards flanked with gold-colored mustard flowers. Except for the last stretch into Napa, which is a rural race- just you, the road and Wine Country. It’s a great race for beginners, as the majority of the course in downhill. Keep in mind that you can’t use headphones, but the picturesque surroundings make up for the lack of tunes.
Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris
At time there’s nothing better than seeing the City of Light than by entering the Paris Marathon- the course runs beside the banks of the Seine and past some of the city’s greatest sites. Between 35,000 and 40,000 racers start on the Champs-Elysees and run a winding loop through the city finishing near the Arc de Triomphe. It may be one of the largest marathons in the world, but it is also one of the coolest run.
Virgin Money London Marathon
This race route passes through the most iconic landmarks of England – Big Ben, the Tower London, the London Eye – and runs along the River Thames and across the Tower Bridge at mile 12. Though you will get a whirlwind of a history lesson, you will also be pretty amused by the crazy costumes and entertainment along the way. Nearly 40,000 people run in the London Marathon every year, making it one of the largest in the world.
