Marbella’s Media Maratón (half marathon) 2017 was held this year on Sunday 24 September. The weather was perfect for this annual event and almost 1,600 runners arrived early on Sunday morning to take part. The start and finish were in the Avenida Ramón y Cajal, right next to the Parque de la Alameda in central Marbella.
“Fit Cycling” arrived in Marbella on Saturday 19 September. Over 100 fitness bikes were set up on the terraces above the Puerto Deportivo in the centre of Marbella ready for a mass workout to the incredible, pulsating high energy music.
On Sunday 26 July, the Acuatlon returned to Marbella. In this event, competitors have to run 2.5 kilometres, swim 1,000 metres and then run another 2.5 kilometres. It is a sort of mini-triathlon without the bicycle ride.
