"The marathon will run the night on Saturday, December 7 and there will be a change of route, which will affect less tourism and the Hotel Zone."
To innovate the Night Marathon of Cancun this year, the route will be modified: the return of the 21 kilometers will no longer be until the Pok Ta Pok roundabout; for this year it would be at the height of the Calinda bridge, at kilometer 4.5 of the boulevard.
"The return of the 42 kilometers or the full marathon was at Delfines beach, and now we are looking for it to be no farther than the Melody Maker hotel (El Rey Return, kilometer 12 Kukulcan Boulevard). What we look for with this, that the marathon has an affectation, maximum of 12 kilometers, inside the Hotel Zone. The measure frees hotels and the tourism issue of kilometer 12.5 onwards, which will facilitate transfers and tourists who are not visiting the race continue to enjoy the destination and nightlife in the area of the nightlife. area of beaches. We have to make the destination and the event have an identity and be an event covered by all."
