Puerto Vallarta’s 1st Annual Marathon

There’s a countless number of items that make Puerto Vallarta one of the best destinations in Mexico. The beaches, the 300 sunny days each year, and the friendly people who live here all contribute to Puerto Vallarta being a favorite for both nationals and tourists alike. 

This year, the tourism board is bringing in more attention and making PV even better with its 1st Annual Marathon race this month. 2018 is marked as the centennial anniversary of the municipality of PV as well as its 50th year as a city, and all of PV will be celebrating at the finish line as they’re expecting a turnout of over 2,500 runners from all over the world!

The marathon participants will run along the main avenues in Puerto Vallarta, starting from the Puerto Magico, aka the Maritime Terminal. Everyone is welcome to participate, from all over the world, and for every level of fitness since there is also a Half Marathon race and a recreational 5k run/walk that is perfect for beginners and aspiring runners.  

Listed as one of the best cities to live in, Puerto Vallarta stands out for its safety both for residents and tourists looking to get out of their normal routine and have some relaxing beach time fun in the sun.

If you’re looking to relax and enjoy yourself after the Puerto Vallarta Marathon, we invite you to relax on the welcoming shores of Mantamar Beach Club Bar & Grill where you can rest in one of our comfortable loungers and enjoy a refreshing dip in the deep blue waters of Mexico’s best gay beach: Los Muertos Beach.
