The activity report and financial report of the Association for 2018 was presented at the Annual General Staff Meeting on 5 April 2019.
The Metz Marathon, a major event in the Grand-Est region, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2019.
Its location and its past make Metz a historic European city.
Robert Schumann, one of the fathers of Europe, lived, worked and was elected here.
Metz is bordered by three countries (Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany) and has been, since its inception, one of the keys to the influences and powers that have shaped Europe.
The city decided to place its heritage and history at the service of the European idea by creating a running event to bring people together.
Within the Metz Marathon, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2019 and will be the race used for the French Marathon Championship, and with the patronage of the Congress of the Council of Europe, the city of Metz and the marathon organisers have created the European Challenge.
THE EUROPEAN CHALLENGE: THE RACE FOR DEMOCRACY, HUMAN RIGHTS AND EUROPE.
Each region represented at the Congress of the Council of Europe, is invited to bring their runners, both amateur and professional to this European Challenge.
The participants in this European Challenge will be identified at the Metz Marathon races, and with benefit from specific rankings, podiums and awards, which will be widely publicised.
The Metz Marathon includes 5 different races:
• the marathon (42.195 km), official, Olympic historical and mythical distance ()
• the relay marathon for 2 or 4 runners, the equivalent for a runner of a half-marathon or a 10K, ()
• the 10 km Haganis, official and Olympic distance, ()
More than 7,000 runners participate in these races and the marathon village welcomes more than 25,000 visitors over the weekend of the event, set for October 12 and 13, 2019.
Part urban and part rural, the routes of the Metz Marathon are good for performance (the current record of the Metz marathon at 2h 11’ 33”), and offer the opportunity to traverse the center of the city and discover its monuments with their 3,000 years of history. For a few kilometers, the keys of the city are handed to the runners.
