Welcome to the EDP Murcia Marathon!
Do you know Murcia yet?
Murcia is the seventh most populated city in Spain, and lies in the meadow of the river Segura, in the fertile land once known as the “vegetable garden of Europe”.
The climate of Murcia is hot in Summer, great for outdoor activities and going to the beach, and so benign in Winter as to hold a full Marathon event in ideal temperatures, between 10 and 15 °C (check latest prediction in DarkSky!). Murcia is also a very flat city, a little over sea level, and protected from sea winds by the mountains of Carrascoy. Don’t you think Murcia is a great place to run your next Marathon?
Murcia is easily reached by road, bus and train, and has three close international airports: the new International Airport of Region of Murcia (code RMU), which will probably be receiving flights soon; the Airport of San Javier (SJV); and the better known Airport of Alicante – El Altet (ALC).
Enjoy your time in Murcia. There is plenty to see and discover, from the monumental Cathedral to our delicious gastronomy.
You can get very convenient lodging in Murcia thanks to the Tourism Council of Murcia. Selected hotels have agreed to offer discounts and special services to participants in the Marathon: late checkout and early breakfast (subject to conditions, check at the hotel).
To profit from this offer check in using the website of the Tourism Council.
