This year’s race will be the 34 edition of the famous and traditional Madrid’s San Silvestre Vallecana race, which takes place every 31st of December in the streets of the Spanish capital. The aim of this event is to celebrate the last day of the year, and the participants are in charge of making the race a party by wearing funny customs and filling everything with its happiness.
Every year, the race is massively followed and thousands of people decide to run together. Actually, this year’s edition is expected to mobilize 35000 people! The runners are divided into two categories: the popular one, where you can run with the only condition of being older than 16 years old; and the professional one, with specific conditions to accomplish.
The race, which will start at 17.30h in the Concha Espina Street, will pass by the main touristic points, such as the Puerta de Alcalá, Cibeles Fountain or the Paseo del Arte.
A little recommendation for the participants: Although most of the route is quite comfortable, as it is slightly down, the last part of the itinerary is supposed to be a little more ascendant and difficult, so… reserve energy for the end!
The San Silvestre Vallecana race will be a beautiful event to see the last day of this 2011 in Madrid. However, the night is young and the Madrid’ New Year’s Eve will be full of surprises, in order to say goodbye to the year in a memorable way. Celebrating this great day abroad (and especially in Madrid), will be something that you will remember all your life!
