Calendar of the most popular races in Madrid

Madrid is a city on the move. Throughout the next few weeks, there will be continuous traffic from cars and people. On weekends however, the decline in the number of cars on the road is replaced by thousands of people on bikes and foot. Although there are many popular races that take place in Madrid, it is impossible to mention all of them. Various races at different times and dates take place in many districts except during July and August, when the intense heat of the sun makes it inadvisable to go running.

During the rest of October, the most distinguished race takes place for the first time. On 23rd, it will be the Women's Half Marathon with 21 kilometres starting and finishing in Plaza de Colón. That same day, there will be a 10-kilometre trophy run from Retiro Park. The month ends with the V Carrera Popular Madrid and Solidario on October 30th.

Of the many races scheduled in November, most prominently, the 13th, is the Derbi de las Aficiones, a traditional confrontation of Real Madrid and athletes on a journey of 10 kilometres between the two stadiums.

December will showcase some of the most recognised races. La Carrera de las Empresas will be held on 11th December in Paseo de la Castellana, while on 18th, the VIII Carrera de la Solidaridad will leave its mark in Casa de Campo. To finish off the year, the most important race, the 10-kilometre la San Silvestre Vallecana Popular e Internacional, will take place. 

During 2017, Madrid will continue its frantic race on asphalt roads. There will also be new races added as well as the traditional ones. 

Thus, in January, la Carrera Solidaria de Reyes is traditionally celebrated as one of the oldest races. Last year, la Carrera Solidaria de Reyes reached its 28th edition. By February, the Raid Villa de Madrid race will be more than 20 kilometres through Parque del Oeste and Casa de Campo. The Cross del Carnaval will be celebrated in March in Parque Juan Carlos I. During the last 30 years, this race has covered more than 100 kilometres in Pedestres Villa de Madrid plus there is also the Carrera de Bomberos race that takes off from Puerta del Sol. 

In April, the usual Madrid Marathon Media (la Media Maratón madrileña) and the Solidaria race for march against cancer as well as the Rock'n Roll Marathon Madrid take place. This race starts from the scenic road that runs along Castellana, Casa de Campo and Madrid River. In May, the capital is flooded with pink Women's Race (la Carrera de la Mujer), while in June, before the summer break begins, la Carrera del Medio Ambiente will take place.
