Popular Race: from Madrid to the Balkans

Sunday, 6th March at 9 am. Madrid

Registration period open

Popular Race: From Madrid to Balkans

At the end of 2010 the Army mission in the Balkans came to an end. Within the tributes that are being carried out and with the sporting spirit that we wish to maintain in many of our activities, Army Headquarters launches its first season of the popular race: “From Madrid to the Balkans”.

The route chosen for Sunday, 6th March at 9 am, is completely urban and has Headquarters in Cibeles square itself as the starting and finishing site. It is 10 km across the capital’s downtown streets, as it also passes by the headquarters of the embassies of Bosnia- Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia, whose representatives have collaborated fully in the organisation of this event.

Both the date and the distance have been chosen by experts with the aim of aiding the preparation of those who have the goal of competing in longer races and plan their season in this manner. In any case, we hope to have amateurs of various qualities, runners in general who contribute their endurance and running shoes in tribute to a mission that has been so important to the Army for 18 years.

We intend for it to be a festive day thanks to our efforts and entertainment, in addition to the irreplaceable municipal support, although our physical capability to receive athletes is limited to 1,000 participants. So, hurry up!
