The London Marathon is truly a marathon for every runner. The huge field, beautiful course, enthusiastic crowds, and party atmosphere appeal to first-timers, while the speed of the course and faultless organization continue to draw seasoned marathoners. The inaugural event in 1981 was inspired by the New York City Marathon, but London`s success has made it the benchmark against which all others are now judged.
Course: The point-to-point route starts in Blackheath and Greenwich Parks in southeast London, passes right by the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, and finishes next to St. James Park on the Mall. Along the way, it takes you past many more of the city`s famous historic sights. Although the route twists, turns, and narrows in places, it doesn`t include any notable hills.

If any marathon could honestly claim to be the world`s favorite, it`s New York City. No other event attracts such a large proportion of international runners from so many countries. They`re drawn by the unique appeal of the city, the big-event atmosphere, and the incredible crowds that line the entire route. The original big-city marathon, New York City is a must for anyone who wants to experience all the energy and excitement a marathon can offer.
Course: Starting on the huge expanse of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge from Staten Island, the course offers a feast-for-the-senses cultural tour through New York`s five boroughs, then finishes in Central Park.

Berlin has established its world-class marathon credentials thanks to its record-breaking course and super-efficient race organization. But the race offers far more. The crowds are large and loud (if sporadic), and the course provides a tour through 20th-century history. You run past grand historical architecture, the austere buildings of former East Berlin, and the modern, hi-tech commercial properties of the western section. Although recent world records in this marathon have captured headlines, Berlin is proud of its reputation as a genuine people`s race.
Course: Except for two gentle inclines near 17 and 21 miles, the course is almost perfectly flat. It`s also wide and relatively straight, especially in the first 2 miles and the final stretch on Kurfurstendamm. There`s plenty to catch your eye along the way, however, unless you`re too busy going for a world record.

It may not boast the crowds of New York City or the history of Boston, but in nearly all other respects, the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon now holds the edge as America`s best and biggest marathon. From its nadir in 1987 when the event was cancelled, Chicago has re-established its world-class credentials with a supremely fast course, excellent race management, and a concern for the ordinary runner that other events should emulate.
Course: The flat, wide, fast, loop course starts and finishes in the vast expanse of Grant Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. The route showcases many of Chicago`s attractions-from the city-center skyscrapers to the diverse ethnic neighborhoods most tourists never see.

Boston is the world`s oldest marathon, steeped in tradition, with unparalleled crowd support, a classy field, and a quick point-to-point course. Sadly, it`s also a marathon a majority of runners will never experience, because of its strict qualifying standards. That certainly doesn`t stop people from trying, however, as the exclusivity of the race creates much of its allure.
Course: The race starts due west of Boston in sleepy Hopkinton (though not so sleepy on race day), and passes through seven small towns before finishing at Copley Square in downtown Boston. While the course drops more than 400 feet overall, mostly in the early miles, it does climb noticeably as the course traverses the Newton Hills between 17 and 22, culminating with the infamous Heartbreak Hill. Then it`s flat or downhill to the finish.

While Rotterdam isn`t usually considered one of Europe`s must-visit cities, thousands of runners come en masse to this modern port city to take part in the marathon every spring. They`re drawn by a pancake-flat course and the knowledge that the organizers produce an excellent race. What`s more, the city really champions the event, and practically closes down on race day. Rotterdam continually improves in novel ways (it was one of the first marathons to use the timing chip), and certainly challenges the idea that only great cities can host great marathons.
Course: Again, The Netherlands is devoid of hills, so it`s no surprise that Rotterdam offers one of the flattest, fastest courses on earth. Other than the Erasmus Bridge at 2-K and two wooden sections at 5-K and 30-K, the loop course is fairly unremarkable. But then, you don`t go to Rotterdam for the scenery.

The city of Paris has never struggled to attract visitors in the springtime. It`s just that in the past, not many of them came for the marathon, which for years had been plagued by organizational snafus and indifferent support. Not any longer. The organization has greatly improved, the race has the budget to draw a decent elite field, and runners now flock to the Paris Marathon by the thousands. Crowd support is still limited, but never mind. Paris now has a race worthy of one of the world`s greatest cities.
Course: Many European marathons promise a sightseeing tour on foot, then route you through long stretches of industrial wasteland. Not so with Paris. The race course packs in just about every feature the city has to offer. You start on the Champs-Elysees, pass through the Bois de Vincennes and Bois de Boulogne in the early stages, and take in the Louvre, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, and Eiffel Tower along the way. It`s not a fast course, but with views like these, who cares!

Most runners don`t need an excuse to visit Hawaii, particularly in early December when much of the northern hemisphere is cloaked in cold and darkness. But if you need one, the Honolulu Marathon is it. It`s a big race with big atmosphere. Much of that ambiance comes from the visiting Japanese, who constitute the majority of the huge field. The race starts painfully early (at 5 a.m.) in dar
