Maratón Pacífico Mazatlán 2022 español
Rated one of the 10 best marathons in the world!

Runners at the Mazatlan Marathon

As a result of the global situation, the Mazatlán Marathon was not run in 2021. We invite you to learn about the history of the event, and...


The Mazatlán Marathon is the annual destination for 10,000 runners, including many of the world's best

Consistently rated one of the top 10 marathons in the world, Maratón Pacífico Mazatlán has become one of the most important international long distance running events held anywhere.

The full and half-marathons are limited to 10,000 participants, but this celebration of running draws many times that number to our port!

Mazatlan Marathon finish line winners

For many participants, the Mazatlan Marathon is the highlight of their running seasons, and a chance to run with some of the world's best.

On the professional men's side, the marathon has been owned lock, stock and barrel by runners from Kenya. When we say owned, we mean really owned: Kenyan men have won the last 10 Mazatlan Marathons.

2017 Mazatlan Marathon winner Benjamin KiplimoIn many recent runnings of Gran Maratón Pacífico Mazatlán -- 2013, 2015 and 2017 -- it has been the same Kenyan man, Benjamin Kiplimo Meto, who has taken home the title.

Kiplimo is widely regarded as one of the best marathon runners from any country.

His personal best of 2:13:45 puts him in extremely rarified running company, and he has clocked some very fast times at shorter distances as well.

Kiplimo isn't just a winner in our port: he's taken home gold medals all over the world and throughout Mexico, winning major marathons in a number of Mexican cities, including Tijuana in 2014 and just up the road in Culiacan in 2019.

Leading runners at the 2017 Mazatlan MarathonOn the women's side, things have been slightly more competitive in terms of the nations where the winners have come from.

Mexicana Karina Pérez won in 2011 and 2013, American Mary Acor won in 2012 and another Mexican female runner, Misha Ruiz Fernández, won in 2015.

Other than those non-Kenyan winners, it's been an all Kenyan scene on the women's side as well for the past decade, most recently Salina Jebitok's solid victory at the 2017 marathon.

Will Kenyans continue to dominate the Mazatlan Marathon? Get over to the course on race day and watch the results for yourself!

The Mazatlán Marathon is inclusive, offering events for the differently-abled and children of all ages

Mazatlan Marathon children's eventMaratón Pacífico Mazatlán provides a multitude of running events -- and entertainment for everyone!

Children as young as 4 years old can participate in running events -- 70 meters is the distance for 4 and 5 year olds. Those younger than 4 can be pushed, as you can see...

Distances, obviously, grow progressively longer with age.

If your runner-children aren't real young, all of the events from the 3K recreational run to the 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon are open to both male and female competitors who are over 15 years old on race day.

Maratón Pacífico Mazatlán also includes events for athletes with disabilities, allowing the differently-abled to fully experience the marathon.

Mazatlan Marathon event for disabled athletesFor 20 years, these events have marked the start of both marathon days.

Events for differently-abled athletes this year include both a 10K (Saturday) and 21K (Sunday).

In addition to these longer events, on Sunday the Mazatlan Marathon also stages a super-fun Run For Fun for children with disabilities.

If you're watching the marathon, check out one of these events whether you know a competitor or not: they are an inspiration.

The Mazatlán Marathon is not all about athletic competition!

The Mazatlan Marathon is much more than the races: it is a multi-day celebration of Mazatlan, the stage upon which the athletic events are held.

Smart runners and their families and friends extend their marathon vacations to allow time to explore our port and sample the wonderful restaurants, bars, theater and other entertainment that it offers. Some even take in a baseball game!

And of course, runners and non-participants alike thrill to the Festival de La Luz fireworks display that is mounted in conjunction with the event. Staged from firing positions along miles of Mazatlan beaches and from offshore, this is a really big fireworks and laser show -- all of which can be viewed from the Malecon, for free!

The fireworks show starts at 8pm -- right on time, don't be late.
