The Lost City Marathon kicks off from the ancient Maya city of Palenque, México.

The race features both a marathon and a half marathon. The awe-inspiring route follows jungle trails, majestic rivers, picturesque ranches and small villages. It's a challenging race crossing various surfaces and steep hills and provides a fascinating glimpse into the religious and cultural practices of the Maya people which thrived in this once vibrant and powerful city, famous for its well preserved and impressive architecture of the Maya civilization. It has now been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historical and cultural significance. 

The Lost City Marathon will be started in waves, with the first wave setting off at 07:00 in the morning. The number of waves to follow depends on the final number of runners. 

MARATHON runners have a net time limit of 7 hours, meaning any marathon runner spending more than 7 hours on the route will receive an FNT (Finished No Time) on the results list.

HALF MARATHON runners will have a 6½ hours net time limit.

7 hours after the last marathon runner crossed the start line the race will end and runners still on the route will be picked up by race officials and driven back to the finish area.
