What You Can Expect

Small-Group Madrid Running Tour

Visit some of the best monuments of Madrid running in this Small-Group Madrid Running Tour

Meet your guide in central Madrid, and start with a quick chat about your running experience and general level of fitness. All tours include a warm-up and stretch session plus a souvenir photo or video (your choice). Simply choose from one of the following itineraries and turn up with good sneakers and a bottle of water!

City Highlights:
Jog around the downtown streets and Los Austrias, the neighborhood that’s often called Habsburg’s Madrid in reference to the Habsburg dynasty’s architectural legacy, and see a collection of exciting monuments. Highlights include the Fountain of Neptune, Plaza Mayor – an elegant square lined with red-brick buildings – plus the Royal Palace of Madrid and Plaza de Cibeles, home to Madrid’s famous fountain of the goddess Cibele.

Temple of Debod:
Start near Plaza de España and work your way around Parque del Oeste, a tranquil city park that’s home to the Temple of Debod. Stop to admire the famous Egyptian monument and hear how it was given as a present to Spain by the Egyptian government. Pose for pictures set against the backdrop of Plaza de España’s skyscrapers and then continue jogging through the park, passing rose gardens, streams and leafy trees.

Start near Plaza de España, run past Sabatini Gardens, and then head alongside the banks of the Manzanares River – a beautiful waterway that passes from Guadarrama Mountains right through the city. The route is popular with local runners as it’s less crowded than other central places to jog. Chat with your guide on the way, learning about the famous river and hearing how its upkeep has become one of the most expensive city projects in recent decades.

Buen Retiro Park:
Explore Buen Retiro Park, where the yearly Madrid Marathon finishes, and jog through the throngs of buskers and street performers, passing its lake and several stunning monuments. The park is better suited for leisurely jogs as there is so much to see! Stop to admire the world’s only statue of Satan – El Angel Caído – and marvel at the beautiful gates called Puerta de Alcalá.

Casa de Campo:
Explore Casa de Campo, a large city park that was once a royal hunting ground, and jog around its large lake before retreating from the midday sun with a run through the forest. Often called the ‘green lung of Madrid,’ the much-loved city park is a real oasis of peace and tranquility as well as a popular competition training ground for serious athletes; Casa de Campo hosts the annual Madrid Triathlon World Cup.

I gave this tour to my husband for Father's day as I knew he would be uncomfortable running in Madrid until he became familiar with the area. The meeting place was a subway stop so that was convenient. Emily was the 'tour guide' and she was wonderful. As the only one on the tour, my husband was able to set the pace and distance. It was an enjoyable start to our 2nd day in Spain. Ask for Emily as she was a great running partner.
