Rio de Janeiro Marathon held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is a 42km run through the city streets starting in Receiro and finishing in Flamengo on a point-to-point course. With the Serra do Mar mountains rising inland from Rio’s fabulous shoreline, this scenery with oceans to the right and mountains to the left, makes the course one of the more picturesque marathons in the world. Runners see parts of famous neighborhoods like Praia da Reserva, Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana, Botafogo and Flamengo along the way.

More than twenty thousand registered runners are expected to take part in the events in 2013.
