Despite the positive evolution of the pandemic situation in Portugal, delay in the vaccination process led the Maratona Clube de Portugal, the health authorities and the official event partners, to review the calendar of events organized by the club, namely the "EDP ​​Lisbon Half Marathon", "Vodafone 10K" and "5K Women Race - EDP Lisboa, a Mulher e a Vida".

Current calendar for 2021:

12 September – 5K Women Race – EDP Lisboa, a Mulher e a Vida (previously scheduled for 6 June)

17 October – EDP Lisbon Marathon (42K), Luso Half Marathon (21K) and EDP Mini Marathon (8K)

20 November – Vodafone 10K* and Luso 7K (previously scheduled for 11 September)

21 November – EDP Lisbon Half Marathon (21K) (previously scheduled for 12 September)

12 December – EDP Christmas Race (10K)

*Vodafone 10K, formerly Mini Marathon, will take place this year, exceptionally, on a Saturday in order to reduce the number of participants at the start line, on the “25 de Abril” bridge. The Vodafone 10K race will take place on Saturday, 20 November and the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon race, on Sunday, 21 November. The option of separating these two races is a preventive measure, due to the uncertainty of the pandemic situation on the dates of the races. We are positive that at that time, the pandemic will be under control. The organisation will make all efforts to guarantee a safe race to all runners and staff. In 2022 both races will take place again together, on the same day.

The dimension and popularity of the EDP Lisbon Half Marathon deserves our utmost care in terms of planning and organisation of the event. “Vaccines are the light at the end of the tunnel, I hope that we will soon return to a “close to normal” situation" said the Maratona Clube president, Carlos Moia. “The rate of vaccination varies from country to country, so the new dates give us more guarantees and security to accommodate international runners registered for our races. The EDP Lisbon Half Marathon brings thousands of foreign runners to Portugal and we are also thinking about them.”
