MADRID EXPRESS RUN - 7 KM

Runner on the ground - PHILIP

We start the run at the Puerta de Alcala, probably one of the most famous landmarks in Madrid, which is a neoclassical-style gate to commemorate King Charles III’s triumphal entry into Madrid. The gateway has 5 arches–3 central, and 2 outer rectangular ones. Not far from there, we’ll pass the Cibeles Fountain and Cibeles Palace which is probably one of Madrid’s most beautiful landmarks. The Cibeles Fountain (Fuente de Cibeles) stands in the middle of the busy traffic island at the junction of the Paseo del Prado, and the Calle de Alcala. From there we’ll pass the Prado Museum on our way to Puerta del Sol, undoubtedly one of the busiest Plaza’s in Madrid. Here you’ll see the “Oso y Madrono” (The Bear and Strawberry Tree) and the famous Clock Tower which thousands of people flock to each New Year’s Eve with their 12 grapes to welcome in the New Year. After passing through Sol, we head up to Plaza Mayor which was once the centre of Old Madrid. The equestrian statue in the centre of the square is of Felipe III who in fact ordered the square to be built. Nowadays the square is lined mostly with cafés, and is also the starting point for most of the walking tours in Madrid. Our next stop is the Royal Palace. Although the current King and Queen have chosen not to live here,the Palace is still used for certain ceremonies. Further on from the Palace is the Plaza de Espana (currently under construction). where the statue of Don Miguel de Cervantes, world famous author of the novel Don Quixote is situated. Thereafter we’ll run up the popular Gran Via which continues to be a main artery for the city of Madrid, lined with theatres and cinemas, hotels, shops and restaurants. On our way back down Gran Via, we’ll also pass the Banco de Espana, another famous landmark of Madrid.

    Nadher took us on a very nice run showing us the absolute highlights of the city which we managed to squeeze in during our business trip. Lovely way to get to know to city more than the inside of a conference room

    Today was day 2 of my running tour of Madrid with John and it was as excellent as my first! After suffering from a late night and a bit too much to drink John was totally adaptable to my running pace. Running around Madrid with John pointing out places of interest is really an exceptional way to see the city. John makes it all so interesting and the time flies by. His professional and friendly manner make this tour compelling. If you enjoy running, you’ll love this. It’s quite addictive!

      Thanks Fiona, it was really fun running with you in Madrid as well, and even doing a bit of shopping at one or two of the shops that you couldn’t resist. Hope to see you back in Madrid again soon.

    We visited Madrid for the first time and booked the Express Tour. John was an amazing guide, showed us probably everything there is to see in Madrid. 😉
    Because we did the run on our first day, we afterwards had a very good feeling about where we wanted to go and what sights/museums we wanted to visit. The Express Tour is perfect to get an overview. John was great, the pace was exactly how we had requested and on top he‘s not only very knowledgeable but also a friendly and and very nice person!
    Thank you, John! It was great running with you!

    Amazing Experience

    Jogging in the early morning with John was an amazing experience and I can warmly recommend you.
    I am normally a late riser and jogging at 7 am and with a temperature of 5 Degree is not really convincing, but John was a really good motivator and I had lot of fun to know more about the City and as well to see those places. Thank you John for this amazing experience!
