Annually​ over 50,000 runners participate in the largest and most famous world marathon. It attracts both professionals and amateurs from many countries. It also gathers around two million spectators each year. The runners are supported by live bands and DJs.

Since the amount of the applications for participation is huge, it is mostly chosen by a lottery system. But you can get a guaranteed​ participation by making a don​ation to one of the official Charity Partners.
