Havana.- More than 1,000 runners from several countries will participate in the 2010 International Marathon of Havana (MARABANA).
According to organizers, Cuban and foreign athletes have already confirmed participation in the race, but that number is expected to increase over the next few days.
Participants include the winner of the 2009 MARABANA in the marathon category, Cuban runner Jorge Luis Suárez, who clocked 2:27.42 hours.
Foreign experts will be in charge of measuring and certifying the circuit for the race, scheduled for November 21.
In Cuba's case, the circuit is 21.975 kilometers, so the race will consist of two laps that will coincide with the start and finish lines.
