In October the weather in the south of Spain is still perfect, no too hot and not too cold, a great time for walking. A nice opportunity to discover the unknown sides of Marbella during the walking event Marbella 4Days Walking.
The historic city centre will be the starting point for the 20 and 30 km routes which will lead the walkers from all over the world through the city, the nature and along the beach. The last day, the 14th of October, they will walk the Via Gladiolo (gladiolus being the Roman symbol for victory) back to the Avenida del Mar where they will be welcomed with loud cheers. The dates for this year are 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th of October. It will also be possible to participate in fewer days as well. New for 2012 are 30 kilometer routes and a fully automatic subscription system.
Marbella 4Days Walking took place for the first time in 2011, with more than 700 walkers from
several countries participating in walking 20 kilometers every day. Especially on the Sunday and Wednesday (a national holiday) many people joined for just one day. The organization of Marbella 4Days Walking has decided to make some improvements this year, there will also be walking routes of 30 kilometers and the subscription system is fully automatic. Organizer Hans Wohl: “Last year we manually entered all data ourselves, this year people who subscribe on our site will automatically receive their confirmation with a bar code which we will scan at the registration tent. That way, starting and finishing will go more quickly and we’ll have a better view of the amount of people on the routes.” For the convenience of the participants, as well as for the protection of the database, there is a login system. Subscribers will have to fill in a form just once and can check and change their details at any time.
