The 2020 edition of the Marathon de la Route will run from June 13 to 16 across the Bourgogne-Franche Comté, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Occitani regions of France. The route will cover 1800km including 50 regularity sections. “The course will be completely new, with two short loops on Saturday and Monday, 99.9% of paved roads and less than 100 kilometres of highway to bypass the centre of major cities on the course,” said organiser Joseph Lambert. “When imagining this route, we wanted to focus on some of the highlights of the history of motor sport in France.”
