A race with different categories depending on your objectives and expertise (marathon, half-marathon and 10km). Would you like to take part?

Opportunity to discover Palma de Mallorca
Without a shadow of a doubt, the beautiful route designed for the race is one of the main attractions for both runners and their travel companions.
Palma is the capital of the dreamy island of Mallorca, bathed by the Mediterranean Sea and retaining a huge part of its multicultural traditions while at the same time having become a truly cosmopolitan city. You will love the central Paseo del Born, a tree-lined avenue full of life, always full of people just out for a stroll, resting on the benches, enjoying a coffee on one of the café terraces or watching the street artists. This is a perfect place for shopping, enjoying the spectacular architecture of Mallorcan city palaces and mansions or simply relaxing in one of the numerous bars and restaurants.
Palma Kids Run for the little ones
For the youngest visitors to Mallorca, the Zafiro Palma Marathon includes a fun race which takes place in the afternoon of October 12: Palma Kids Run. This event for children up to age 12 can help them discover that sport is a positive thing for them to have in their lives. The race is organised in different levels by age and with distances ranging from 300 to 1,200 metres. Our mascot Yzzy will also be there at the event to cheer on all the runners!
