Calling all running lovers! the Palma de Mallorca Marathon 2017 is fast approaching! This family Marathon takes place on October 15, 2017 in the Balearic capital. Zafiro Hotels, as official partners of the PMM with our hotels in Palmanova, would like to give you all the details and hopefully encourage you to participate in the marathon that comes to life in October in Palme de Mallorca.
The circuit starts from the Parc de la Mar, opposite the Cathedral, and continues along the promenade of Palma Bay, passing through the historic centre of the city.
Each year, the PMM brings together hundreds of people of all nationalities, who are motivated to take part in this very special sporting event. Although it might seem a bit strange it is not just the locals who take part in the race but also hundreds of tourists who come from all over Europe to Mallorca specially to take part in this event. The participants take the opportunity to visit the island to enjoy the mild climate and of course to run the PMM which gives them a chance to see the Capital city from a very different viewpoint.
As well as the day of the marathon the week leading up to the race there will be events and activities for all ages so why not sign up for the Breakfast Run or encourage the younger members of the family to take part in the Palma Kids Run.
