Not to be confused with Lisbon Half Marathon.

Portugal Half Marathon is an annual half marathon contested every September in Lisbon, Portugal.

A new, faster course was established for the race in 2010 and 25 km record holder Mary Keitany duly responded by setting a women's course record of 1:08:46.[1] She returned the following year and defended her title in another women's course record of 1:07:54 hours, while Silas Sang had his third victory in the men's competition.[2]
