Seville Marathon 2013 (February 24); More than running, release, note by Larry Eder



Poster for Sevilla 2013 maraton

Marathons, as most know, are big business. And running a marathon in Spain? Oh, come on, how can you miss? Run the Sevilla marathon, then hang out a week and learn about flamenco dancing! Also walking around Sevilla is like a lesson in Spanish history! When I was there, I took an afternoon and found the birthplace and burial site of Miguel de Cervantes, the writer of Don Quixote. 

Marathons in the US are growing as are marathons around the world. Find a race in a city you wanted to explore, take the week after the marathon off  (Spain is quite reasonable, as are other venues), and have some fun! 

Seville Marathon 2013: "More than running"

The XXIX edition of the Seville Marathon 2013 (Andalusia, Spain) shows its oficial promotional video featuring Mary Anne Dixon, an American age grouper runner who is living in Seville and invites athletes worldwide to discover why this special marathon means "much more than running".

Seville Marathon is going to be held on February 24, and is a perfect run race in one of the most touristic and beautiful cities in Europe. The new race course (totally flat, with nice weather conditions and one of the fasters in Europe!) is going to be unveiled this week and will go through the city centre of Seville, between all its monuments. Early bird inscriptions are still available.
