Lisbon’s baroque serpent nature perhaps converts it with his unforgettable beauty, in an ideal scenario for an unhurried running event, perhaps that is the reason why the Marathon has been held continuously in Lisbon for nearly thirty years (http://www.lisbon-marathon.com/) and has become one of the most important ones held around the continent judging both the high and growing level of participation as the fascinating and evocative circular running path, located at the junction of more than two kilometers of its stunning suspension bridge one of the most critical points of any imaginable itinerary.
The abysmal view from the top of this impressive metal structure lifted majestically over the Tagus estuary rhyme with essential tremor caused by thousands of years associated since antiquity with the end of the world and the beginning of the unknown, the sad limit, the elegant and nostalgic ending of all the things that one can believe have had some kind of certainty.
Interestingly, that same feeling perhaps is accentuated this year by some of the closeness of the apocalypse predicted by the Mayans, for the race will take place on December 9, less than two weeks before the date set for hundreds of years predicting the disaster by the fascinating pre-Columbian civilization-not at odds with either the historical origin of the race.
42 kilometers is the distance covered by the current race as it was the distance to be covered by the people of Athens to fight a disproportionately fearsome Persian army superior in numbers and prestige nonetheless getting one of the most formidable military victories of all time.
It was the first chapter of Medical Wars and it can probably be said of it that it decisively changed the course of Western history. The emerging forms of political organization that, once freed from its traditional town tyrants, were at that time in Athens and who would develop the embryo of the first forms of democratic consolidation achieved largely through the impetus provided by a victory
Running through the streets of Lisbon is to live through their rich history and since this is always a continuum, also in Europe, at least from that day and the mythical past two and a half millennia.
Although held in December, a pleasant temperature around 15 degrees is expected on the race day. One way or another, do not miss this extraordinary event by renting a Lisbon apartment.
