Madrid is the venue for one of the most important athletics events in Spain. What's more, there will be various street concerts all along the route to provide entertainment, as well as a music festival at the finishing line.
This 42-kilometre run through the city each year attracts some one million people who turn out to cheer on the athletes in the unique setting of Madrid. The city is transformed into a huge outdoor stadium to receive athletes from all over the world, who compete for victory against the backdrop of the Royal Palace, Paseo del Arte (Art Avenue), Puerta de Sol square, Cibeles fountain and Puerta de Alcalá arch, among others. This is yet another great excuse to come and spend a few days in Madrid.
