Your Experience

The Lost City Marathon is taking place in February 2024, and kicks off from the ancient Maya city of Palenque, México.

Palenque is nestled in the dense rainforests of the Chiapas region on the Yucatan peninsula, surrounded by lush vegetation and breathtaking beauty. The race features both a marathon and a half marathon, both of which follow challenging routes across a variety of surfaces and up steep hills. This awe-inspiring route follows jungle trails, majestic rivers, picturesque ranches and idyllic villages.

This location provides a fascinating glimpse into the religious and cultural practices of the Maya people which thrived in this once vibrant and powerful city, famous for its well preserved and impressive architecture of the Maya civilization. It has now been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historical and cultural significance. Let’s embark on this adventure together!

The use of headphones or earplugs of any kind is not allowed for the first 3 kilometres of the race.
