TUI marathon, the perfect running challenge 2014
Once again Majorca is proud to welcome the 11th
edition of the TUI marathon. An enjoyable and fun running event for kids and adults that will be taking place from Friday 17th
to Sunday 19th
at Parc de la Mar.
The event will officially start on Friday when the organizers will set up the Marathon Market and all the equipment needed for the races. The market will include sports and running gear, health articles and many more. However, the big fun starts on Saturday! On Saturday the small ones will be able to participate in the famous "Kids run" where kids from the north run for kids from the south. For the kids, and as the race is in order to help others, it will be free of charge but with limited places so hurry and register online!
Sunday is a busy day for the adults as all the other races will be taking place that same morning. Those are: the Marathon, the 10km run, the half marathon and finally the Nordic Walking (in order and beginning at 9:00 am with 10 minutes of starting time difference between them.) All the routes are measured by the Balearic Federation and will be kept completely free of traffic. They will all start and finish at Parc de la Mar and will cover different parts of Palma depending on the race. Refreshments and care stations will be set up every 3km and medical assistance will be provided at any time. At the finish line participants will collect their medals and will be offered a refreshment and a small snack. Don't miss one of the best sporting events of the year.
