Hello friends!

In the past edition of the Murcia Marathon, celebrated in 2017, a hundred athletes came from other countries to participate in the Marathon, the 10k Race or the Half Marathon on skates. It was so great having people of different nationalities!

We hope you can find in this page all the information you need to enjoy your race.

Date and place

The races will take place in 28th January 2018, in the city of Murcia, Gran Vía. The competitions will take place in the morning, starting around 8:00 AM. Check the regulations for more information.

Modalities

You’ll be able to participate in these different races:

  • The International Murcia Marathon: 42195 meters in a very flat, completely urban circuit of two laps, finishing in one of the trademark places of Murcia, the Square of Cardenal Belluga, in front of our beautiful Cathedral. Fees are 42 EUR until 30 November and 50 EUR until 15 January.
  • The first edition of the Half Marathon, in one lap, sharing circuit with the participants of the Marathon. This year there will be no skaters, only runners. Fees are 18 EUR until 30 November and 22 EUR until 15 January.
  • The 10k Race, for beginners or speed lovers. Fees are 12 EUR until 30 November and 15 EUR until 15 January.

Circuit

The circuit of the Marathon was certified by the Athletics Federation in 2017. It consists of two laps of 21 kilometers, with refreshment points every 5 kilometers approximately. The Half Marathon consists of only one lap. Both races start in Gran Via Escultor Salzillo, around the building of Banco de España, and end in the Cardenal Belluga Square, right in front of our beloved cathedral.

The race of 10 km starts in Gran Via but at a different point, and ends in the Cathedral, too. It consists of running through the Gran Via, forth at the start and back at the end, and two laps around the “butterfly wings”. There will be one refreshment point.

An additional refreshment point after the finish line will be available for all participants.

Virtual Marathon

You can also participate in the Murcia Virtual Marathon and run where you want, the distance you want, the day you want, all your km at once or at different days. If you register in the Virtual Marathon, you are just required to send us a photo or screenshot of your tracking watch or app, or a sworn declaration stating you finished anyhow your race. And you will receive in your address your very own bib number, commemorative T-shirt, and the same goodies bag that the presential runners.

To register, please download and fill our registration form and send it to our email address info@murciamaraton.com, attaching the receipt of the bank transfer.

What happened to the Roller race?

In the last edition in 2017 we celebrated a Roller Half Marathon for skaters. It was very well received by the participants, but the characteristics of the course and simultaneity of the different modalities made quite hard to give everyone a smooth experience in the Marathon day. But instead of just removing the race, we have given the Roller Marathon its due merit and we have one if you are interested, in a different day: I Murcia Roller Maraton. Sadly we have been unable to get the permissions to do this skating event.

If you don’t have a valid Spanish DNI or don’t have a residence in Spain, you won’t be able to register through the website of the Athletics Federation of the Region of Murcia. In your case, please send an email to info@murciamaraton.com with the following information:
