Niteroí boat terminal
Caminho Niemeyer, Niteroi

The ever-popular 21-kilometre race from Niteroí to Rio across one of the longest bridges in the world is undoubtedly the most spectacular event on the city's running calendar. Starting out from the ferry port along the Caminho Niemeyer, eight of those kilometres is taken up cutting across Guanabara Bay, the course then hugging its southern edge all the way passed the MAM and on to the Aterro do Flamengo, from where the 18,000 runners (and the vast majority of spectators) can look back across the water to where they came from, no doubt with a combination of pride and pain.
