The 30th edition of the Lisbon Half Marathon will be held on November, after being postponed on 10 March, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the organization announced.

The Lisbon race, which starts from the 25 de Abril Bridge, in Almada, was reschedule for the fourth time, after being scheduled for 22 March and 6 September, 2020 and for 9 May and 12 September, 2021.

The 21,097.5 km race, which has run out of registrations since the first scheduled date, will take place on Sunday, 21 November, and the popular events, mini-marathon and 10 kilometers, will be disputed the day before, on 20 November.

“Vaccines are the light at the end of the tunnel, the hope that we will soon return to a situation close to normal. The rate of vaccination varies from country to country, so the new date gives us more guarantees and security. The Lisbon Half Marathon brings thousands of foreigners to the country and we are also thinking about them”, said the president of Marathon Clube de Portugal, Carlos Moia.
