Monaco Run back in action


After the 2021 edition, which saw only select runners allowed to participate due to the health situation, the 2022 Monaco Run is open to all and coming next weekend.

As the world trudges slowly back to reality, the organisers of the Monaco Run are speeding things up, telling people they can run, or walk, toward it this weekend.

On 12th and 13th February, the Monaco Run is returning to the Quai Albert Ier, with the event opening the running expo village, starting on Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Memories of the pandemic haven’t entirely gone away, as visitors must present a valid health pass in order to enter. Additionally, everyone must present a PCR or antigen test taken within the last 24 hours in order to collect their bib, as well as show a valid photo ID, a bib collection card – which will have been sent by email upon registration, and a medical certificate dated less than a year on race day with the words “no contraindication to the practice of running or athletics in competition”. A medical certificate can be replaced by a valid FFA license.

The village is the official meeting place for runners, spectators, and volunteers and will be open on the aforementioned Saturday hours, as well as at 7am on Sunday so that participants can continue to collect bibs and souvenir t-shirts. It is also the start and end points for the races.

The traditional 1,000m race, which is usually held on Saturday afternoon, has been cancelled this year.

On Sunday, there will be three events taking place. Beginning at 8:30am, the 10km City Trail starts off the morning, followed by the 5km Herculis run which departs at 10:30am. Simultaneously, the Pink Ribbon Charity Walk will see walkers passing through the streets of the Principality for a good cause.

The cost to enter the races is €15. Online registration can be made at
