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.
