Marseille-Cassis International Classic

The Marseille-Cassis International Classic is an annual half marathon which follows a race from Marseille to Cassis in France during the last weekend in October. It has the silver label of the IAAF Race Label Race Events and is thus among the most successful half marathon breeds in the world. First organized by the SCO Sainte-Marguerite sports club in 1979, the event has grown to a large international competition, with around 12,000 runners competing every year. [1]The course distance of 20.308 meters slightly short of the true half marathon distance (21.097.5 m). Since 2012, the race has been shortened by 308 meters so the total distance of the race has become exactly 20 kilometers. [2] Still, the race is made more difficult by a long 327 m climb up hill-the Col de la Gineste -at the midpoint of the race, which eventually follows back to the port of Cassis. [3] The annual race is usually held in the month of October.
