Are you thinking of escaping the cold and maybe running a nice, warm destination Marathon? Search no more, because there is Tel Aviv Marathon . It always takes place on a Friday end of February. Not only do they have a Marathon, but also a Half Marathon, 10 km and 5 km race. I ran Tel Aviv Marathon in February 2018 as my third Marathon in my 12 Marathon in 12 months project.
Dubai Marathon always takes place in winter when temperatures are bearable, at least for the people living there. On races weekend there is a quite large 10 km race happening, but also the Marathon with less than 3000 participants. The course is quite flat, and it holds the 3rd fastest course record time worldwide.
I ran Dubai Marathon as my second Marathon for my 12 Marathons in 12 months project. If you are looking for a nice Half Marathon in the UAE you can check out my blog post on the Ras al Khaima Half Marathon.
Since I started running doing a RunDisney event was on my bucket list. So for my 32nd birthday I flew to Orlando to run the Disney World Marathon. The Disney World Marathon Weekend is the biggest event weekend of RunDisney. It is comprised of four runs: 5 km on Thursday, 10 km on Friday, a Half Marathon on Saturday and the full Disney World Marathon on Sunday. If you are slightly crazy you might do the Goofy Challenge, which is the Half and the Full Marathon. Or the Dopey Challenge, which is all 4 races on one weekend.

Travel & Accessibility
Getting to the Berlin Marathon is of course quite easy. You can go there by plane, car or train from various European cities.
End of May 2017 I ran the Moonlight Half Marathon with my Dad in Jesolo, just a bit North East of Venice, Italy. It was hot, humid, but also a great race.
