Mayor, Jose Antonio Serrano, confirmed: “The marathon is the ultimate running event and a demonstration of the capacity for self-improvement, hard work and commitment of sportsmen and women.”
“It is a sporting event, but also a social, educational and tourist event that makes our Murcia, our land, even greater.”
“I would like to encourage and wish the best of luck to the athletes taking part. It will be a day that will fill the streets of Murcia with colour, sport and health.”
He added: “Murcia offers a perfect weekend plan, both for runners and their companions, who can enjoy attractions such as the city’s gastronomy and heritage.”
The start of the 10-kilometre race will be at 8:45.AM and the marathon and half-marathon at 9:30.AM, from Avenida Teniente Flomesta. The finish line will be in the Plaza Cardenal Belluga.
