Never Give Up!


Lanzarote International Marathon

With an average temperature of 19ºC the Lanzarote International Marathon takes place in December along a coastal avenue in the Island of Lanzarote, covering the municipalities of Costa Teguise, Arrecife, San Barlotomé and Puerto del Carmen. It has three distances (42k, 21k and 10k), awarding each of the different categories by age and gender.


Due to the situation caused by COVID-19 all over Europe, we are forced to make the sad and difficult decision to cancel the 30th edition of the Fontvella Lanzarote International Marathon for this year 2020.

We have made so many efforts during the past few uncertain months working on the presentation of ideas to bring you a new edition of the 2020 Fontfella Lanzarote International Marathon within Covid guidelines that would be acceptable. We had hoped that we could find a way that would be acceptable so we could enjoy our marathon, our run in the sun by the sea together once again, but it was not to be.

In what continues to be a globally changing and unpredictable situation, we understand the disappointment and inconvenience this decision will cause. Unfortunately, the current situation we are experiencing does not enable us to guarantee the safety of the participants, volunteers, staff and the public, which has always been our priority and it is for this reason that we must cancel this great event.

We thank you sincerely for all the support and patience you have shown, both to the runners as well as to the sponsors and institutions that are part of this event; This gives us the positive confidence to come back in 2021 with more strength and enthusiasm than ever.

For those of you who have registered already for the 2020 Marathon we have the three options below for you to choose from before the 30th September 2020:

  1. Transfer your booking to the 2021 Font Vella Lanzarote International Marathon

  2. Request of the refund of your 2020 entry with € cost for administration and transfer costs

  3. Give the subscription as a donation to the organization for prepaid costs lost

We will announce the date of the 2021 Font Vella Lanzarote International Marathon in October 2020. Watch out for our new date.
