If you are a runner and want to prepare for your races in Madrid, even on your pleasure trips, we recommend some places in the city where you can practice your favorite sport. And it is that running for many of our clients is a fundamental part of their lives, so much so that they also look for their moment to go for a run on vacation, as almost every day. The first is the Parque del Retiro. It is the most popular place in the center of Madrid and although it is always full of runners you can train without problems and surrounded by a good atmosphere and even join groups. The entire lap of the park is 4.5 kilometers and you will also be surrounded by an amazing landscape full of trees, so that running will not be so hard for you. This place is also just a 10-minute walk from our hotel Casual Madrid el Teatro. The Casa de Campo is, without a doubt, the best place to practice this sport. No races are conceived in Madrid that do not pass through here. You can choose both short and longer paths, dirt or asphalt. You will run surrounded by nature and the shadow will accompany you on the different routes. Whatever your level, here you will find the most suitable for you. The Parque del Oeste is another very interesting option to practice running in Madrid. Of course, it is not for beginners due to the unevenness that there are throughout the route. The good thing is that as in the previous two, everything is green and with trees that will give you shade throughout the day. Very well connected also with any point of the city.
Running circuits in Madrid
Another very popular place for running is Madrid Río , the new area occupied by the old M30. From the Segovia bridge to Legazpi there is a flat and pleasant route of about 5 kilometers with views of the Manzanares. The bad thing about this place is that on weekends it fills up with people walking, cyclists, etc. so you have to take it more calmly. If you are just starting out, the ideal place for beginners is Parque del Canal. It is a short and comfortable route, without slopes and very accessible in the center of Madrid. The tour of the Debod-Pintor Rosales Temple is also very simple. With the incentive of running seeing the spectacular Egyptian temple. The best way to combine races in Madrid with tourism.
The Prado-Recoleto s boulevard is an option for an urban tour, perfect if you want to take a short route and one of the other alternatives does not suit you. Also very accessible from our hotel. It is also surrounded by the best theaters and musicals in Madrid , so you can go at night to see a show. Finally, in the Dehesa de la Villa , next to Ciudad Universitaria, you can choose between several routes. It has big slopes so you have to have some experience. The good thing is that it is a large grove that provides shade during the different routes. One of the best circuits to train in the city.
