The Dili International Marathon is now approaching its seventh successive year. The event will see thousands of participants, including many from around the globe, take to the streets of Dili on the 19th of August.

The 42.197km internationally certified course will feature a linear course that will pass the picturesque waterfront of Dili’s central areas.

The marathon is also complemented by a 5km fun run: the “Run for Peace” which will see thousands of Timorese junior and Senior High school students take to the course.

Many more thousands are expected to come out and support the runners at the main stage near the finish line where entertainment for the public will make a festival atmosphere to this half day event. The event provides a unique path of peace on which the most diverse spectrum of Timor- Leste’s society can participate. 

With this message of unity, we invite you to play a part of this truly special event in Dili’s calendar. All are welcome: Mai Its Halai!
