Mallorca hosts the Palma Marathon Mallorca 2017
Mallorca is known as a sun and beach destination, but it’s much more than that. Its gastronomy, popular festivities, villages, culture… and an endless number of qualities that embellish the island.
It’s also an idyllic location for sporty people, who have more and more options: hiking trails where to enjoy nature; cycling routes between city and mountain paths; golf courses, perfect for lovers of this sport, etc.
Races are another good example that has become an increasingly popular activity in Mallorca. Next Sunday 15th, it will take place the most attended one, Palma Marathon Mallorca 2017.
This race includes three different categories: Marathon, ½ Marathon and 10 Km. Coinciding in time with the next Pilar holiday, it represents a perfect occasion to discover the island –if you haven’t done it yet- and experience all the biggest Balearic Island has to offer.
Participants of the Palma Marathon Mallorca will enjoy a course along the promenade over the bay of Palma, towards the Cathedral and into the historic old town. All together make this race into a great walk around various spots of the capital city.
However, this is not the only recommendation for next weekend. If you are on the island, you could enjoy three days filled with lots of different activities, starting with the Runner Expo, Breakfast Run, Pasta Party and ending with the race Palma Kids Run.
Palma Kids Run is a set of races for kids aged between 2 and 12. The participation is free and its objective is to promote values in sport and other ones such as social integration or solidarity between the youngest. On this occasion, the course will be through Antonio Maura Avenue and Born Street. Parents would also be able to participate with their children!
Last edition, Palma Marathon Mallorca 2016 welcomed more than 10.000 participants from 48 nationalities. That’s because almost 70% of enrolled runners are foreign.
The whole team of Hotel Cosmopolitan wishes all of you a great race!
