The Marseille-Cassis Classique Internationale is an annual half marathon which follows a course from Marseille to Cassis in France during the last weekend in October. On 28th of October, around 15 000 runners will set off on this 20.308 km run, which will take them from the Stade Vélodrome to the Port of Cassis. This course has a height difference of 327 m and follows the Col de la Gineste and the Plateau de Carpiagne. Several forms of entertainment are planned along the route in order to encourage the runners. You'll find musicians, dancers, cheerleaders and more enlivening the race route. There are also 5 refreshment points.

Since 1990, the ramble “L’Autre Marseille-Cassis” organized the day before the Classic in the massif of the “Calanques” gathered 1800 walkers and is directed to the awareness of everyone for the environment and assets respect. This success, built over 30 years of existence, belongs to the 600 volunteers of the SCO Ste Marguerite who never hesitate to mobilize themselves to welcome a thousand of people in the best conditions.
