Organised by the Beirut Marathon Association which set up the race in 2003 and now organises a variety of different races across the country.
Their goal is simply stated as being "to build the running community and culture across Lebanon with the message of peace and love".
The event offers a half marathon, an 8k, a 5k, and a 1k race (for children) alongside the main marathon event.
The 2019 event was unfortunately cancelled due to widespread protests.
