Starting at Paseo del Prado (between Neptuno Fountain and Atocha Station) and finishing at Paseo de Coches in El Retiro Park, this race, running across north-eastern Madrid, is on the official calendar of the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).
The course is ideal to enjoy yourself as you run: the crowds will constantly cheer you on, as you go up and down the streets, mostly in the northern part of town. The finish line will be at El Retiro Park (just next to the Prado Museum).
There is a shorter – 5km – version inside El Retiro Park for runners who don’t feel at ease with long distances.
Last year, the winners were Morris Gachaga and Poline Wanjikn, both from Kenya. On the whole, 16,728 runners managed to finish the race – one of the top half marathons in Spain and one of the most popular in Europe.
