The Pink Tide will once more flow through Marbella

The Marea Rosa is once more coming to Marbella

Marbella is preparing for the new ‘Pink Tide’ (Marea Rosa) with a target of 3.000 participants this year.

The Marbella Board of the Spanish Association Against Cancer is organising the Marea Rosa Solidarity Race on Sunday November 19, with the aim of promoting sport as a healthy activity that helps to prevent cancer.

The Marea Rosa is a solidarity race that aims to raise awareness of the importance of prevention and early detection of breast cancer. All participants, through their registration, acquire a pink t-shirt to show their support for all those affected by this disease. It is a way of showing solidarity and support for people fighting against cancer and celebrating all survivors.

Repeating last year’s numbers is the objective set for the charity run this year and registration for the walk is now open at the price of €10. The start will take place at noon and will end at the Palacio de Congresos de Marbella where there will be a celebration party with music, children’s activities, castles and many more surprises.

The meeting point will be from 11am at Avenida del Mar, where participants will be able to warm-up and there will be an opportunity to purchase branded products from the breast cancer charity and handicrafts made by the association’s volunteers.

Following the start at noon, the route continue along the Paseo Marítimo before turning right to pass through the Alhambra del Mar urbanisation towards the Hotel Senator Marbella. It will continue along the service road of the A 340 until it reaches the Adolfo Suárez Conference Centre with the entrance via the rear ramp.

This will complete the 4 kilometres of the event. As last year, once participants arrive at the Palacio de Congresos, they will have free access to a party, designed to be enjoyed by the whole family, where they will find bouncy castles, face painting for the little ones, live music and bars with discounted prices.

All the proceeds from the day will be donated to the support and care programmes that the headquarters of the Spanish Association Against Cancer has in Marbella for women with breast cancer.
