Your 2019 Marathon and Half Marathon Calendar

From San Francisco to South Carolina to South Africa, these are the marathons, half-marathons, and other races to look forward to this year.

Let’s face it: There are so many races held every week, at every distance, in every city, everywhere around the world, that we couldn’t possibly list every single one, even if we tried. We did, however, compile something even better—a list of our favorite races in 2019.

From the desert sands of Death Valley to the cobblestone streets of Paris, there’s a race (or three) for you somewhere in here. We want to make it easy on you, so you can spend less time hunting down races (and their web sites) and more time chasing PRs.

*Not all race dates are finalized.
