Monaco Run

As road racing continues to grow in popularity around the world and participation is increasing at all levels of the sport, Monaco Run stands out amongst other races because it is aimed at runners from beginner to elite level. The event offers 5k or 10k road races as well as City Trail taking runners through some of the most beautiful streets in the world and ending at Monaco’s iconic Port Hercule. 

The 5km Herculis is one of the fastest courses in the world. The route winds from Port Hercules to Monte Carlo Bay, crossing through the Principality’s larger avenues. Then there’s the 1000 metre, aimed at children, and the Pink Ribbon Walk, which raises funds for the fight against breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon walk is 5 kilometres long and will leave from Port Hercule on 12 February 2023 at 10 am. Pink Ribbon Monaco works closely with healthcare professionals and the Princesse Grace Hospital Centre to provide information, screening and support for victims of breast cancer.
