The Moorea Marathon

Created in 1988, the Moorea Marathon, has grown bigger every year and now attracts runners from around the world!

Local runners join in, along with those who love a challenge and enjoy beautiful scenery.

This year, the VSOP-XO club, famous for its XTERRA Trail and Triathlon event in Moorea, with help from Fenua Events and the Moorea-Maiao municipal administration, is .

The 33rd edition is on March 30th and 31st, 2024, at Tahiamanu Public Beach in Moorea. There are prizes up for grabs, including tickets to the Marquesas Marathon and 2 Air Tahiti Nui airline tickets for the top two  marathon participants so that they can run in a international marathon !

With nearly 1500 runners in its best years, the Moorea Marathon is known for its races and attracts the best runners from French Polynesia and athletes from the globe.

The Moorea Marathon is unique

  • With its course that ranks it among the most beautiful exotic marathons in the world with breathtaking landscapes and lush and generous nature
  • From the festive atmosphere. With a sprinkling atmosphere throughout the course, on the refreshment stands and on arrival
  • By showcasing the Polynesian Culture with a powerful “Mana” reigning over all races and the solemnity of the opening ceremonies animated by dances and demonstrations of Polynesian oratory art (Orero)
One discovers the richness of encounters with others and with oneself, and one remains forever fascinated by the beauty and diversity of the landscapes that reveal us and that is called the sister island of Tahiti: Moorea.

Objectives of the Moorea Marathon:

  • Promote Moorea and French Polynesia;
  • Develop sport-tourism;
  • Offer people a festive event;
  • Engage and energize the people of Moorea and its partners;
  • Promote the island’s economy.

Testimonials

All well organized and the volunteers very friendly. The lack of information on the website and even during the pre-race activities was a negative and could be improved greatly!
John Wallace
The pasta party was fantastic. The tiki dancers were great. The appearance of the fat old ugly but ambling mountain goat at the party was memorable and unusual. The pasta itself was prepared well and delicious. And the Tahitian volunteers were exceptional.
Alan Chazin
The race was great! We really enjoyed the route and running on dirt roads (easier on the knees). The announcer was very nice in helping us find the start and answering our questions. The only problem was that since I stayed to receive my award, we missed the 11am athlete bus back to the hotels by 5 minutes. If you could coordinate so the bus leaves after the awards, that would be better.
