Marbella 4Days Walking will be celebrating its fifth anniversary this year.
From October 8 – 11 , thousands of participants from around Europe will take to the streets of Marbella to take on the challenge of walking routes of 20 or 30 km per day for four days, exploring Marbella in a very different way and meeting new people – all part of the 4Days Walking experience.
In order to open up the event to both residents and visitors alike, there are special 6km routes for children and families on Saturday and Sunday and participants can choose to join for one or more days to enjoy the experience.
Completing the challenge of walking 80km in just four days is a no mean achievement and those participants will be awarded with a medal at the end of the event.
The first edition of Marbella 4Days Walking took place in 2011 with 658 participants, more than doubling in 2012 to 1.552. This year the organisers expect more than 2,500 participants and are encouraging more residents of Marbella and the Costa del Sol to get involved and represent Marbella’s vibrant community.
Starting and finishing at Las Terrazas del Puerto Deportivo, in the centre of Marbella each day, there will be entertainment, live music, refreshments, stands and a great atmosphere from 12.oo-17.00 and everyone is welcome to visit the area and enjoy the fun.
Participants can register to take part in the event on the website www.marbella4dayswalking.com for a cost of 40€ for 4 days or 12.50€ per day. Children can take part in the shorter weekend routes for just 2.50€, with accompanying adults walking for free.
