Route Curacao Marathon
The start and finish of the marathon is at the Lions Dive & Beach Resort. This resort is also the host of the Amstel Curacao Race. This is a beautiful setting for this sporting event. Because of the warm weather, the marathon starts at 4:30 in the night. The other start times are set so that everyone will cross the finish line at the same time. After leaving the Lions Dive & Beach resort, the runners go along the coast, through Willemstad, across the pontoon bridge and finally back across the Juliana bridge.
