Mazatlán and Pacífico Marathon´s Grand Fiesta. Lots of stories have been written throughout the Pacifico Marathon´s 42 KM and 192 meters, and thousands and thousands of participants have run, trotted or walked Mazatlán´s spectacular streets. The Pacífico Marathon´s Grand Fiesta is a local tradition that people look forward to year after year, and they make this event their very own Sports Mardi Gras.

Through the years, many activities and events have been added to the Pacifico Marathon´s Grand Fiesta, such as the Race for Joy, the Carbohydrate Dinner, the freeing of baby sea turtles and the Elite 5k race, as well as one of the most relevant events, the Festival of Lights.

Runners attending this event enjoy a very well-rounded program, which starts on the last Saturday of November with the 10K race for disabled athletes, including those on wheelchairs, crutches, or who are legally blind, and closes with the magnificent Festival of Lights event right after the Elite race award ceremony. Fireworks are fired from different points along the entire boardwalk, hundreds of fireworks that light up Mazatlán´s sky in a huge color spectacle for the delight of young and old. Among Sunday´s activities, where participants enjoy the Pacific Ocean scenery, are half-marathon races for athletes on wheelchairs, crutches and those that are legally-blind, 42Km and 21Km races and the Race for Joy.

During its 15th edition, participants ran to the beat of live traditional Sinaloa Band music, where musicians were placed at 2 Km intervals. Both runners and spectators enjoyed the competition in a festive, musical atmosphere, one that motivated runners to make it to the finish line. Consequently, this year´s Marathon is referred to as the Band Music Marathon.
