Going down the same road. No matter where we come from. With the pride of our colours and a common goal. That is the main purpose of the Maratón Gran Canaria ’20 collaborates LaLigaSports, a different and special athletics event, that is born with the intention of gathering professionals and runners from the 42 football teams that are part of La Liga, as well as all the individual fans of each team. 42.195 km to enjoy, work as a team and face new challenges.
The race is organised by The Seagull Sportive S.L. with the support of LaLigaSports and the Spanish Athletics Federation (Real Federación Española de Atletismo), and will be broadcasted live by LaLigaSportsTV. We want you to represent your team. The first edition of the competition will take place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on the weekend of May 22nd, 23th and 24th. We intend to turn the event into a meeting point for every team’s fan base and all the football and running lovers. United for a cause.
Two courses approved by the Real Federación Española de Atletismo will give more strength to the first edition of the Maratón Gran Canaria ’20 collaborates LaLigaSports, that wishes to bring the experience to other Spanish cities in the following editions. The 42 km are the main attraction and they can be run individually or as a four-runner team. But there’s more, a lot more. There is also the possibility of running half-marathon alone. Everything is conceived so that, from the first to the last enrolled runners, everyone can choose according to their preferences. Nobody will be left out. Neither will be the children, which we invite to take part in our kids’ race.
And, of course, there will be a big party in the starting and finish line, where a Fan Zone full of activities and a spectacular environment will be set. Team spirit and fun are guaranteed.
Promote sport and physical activity.
Individual and team options: run in the way you choose.
Your team colours: we encourage the runners to wear the colours of their favourite football team. It will be also possible to run with the colours of other clubs, your business, your city…
