If you want to race in Mexico City, but don’t want something as long as the full marathon, then the half marathon is for you. It is the shorter version of the full marathon and will take place two days prior. The race starts from Torre Caballito, winds through the 1700-acre Bosque de Chapultepec city park, and finishes at the Angel of Independence monument.
