Seville Marathon 2019

Anyone else doing this one?
Took the plunge and entered last week.....
Would welcome any guidance from those who have done it before. Particularly baffled by arrangements for getting to and from the start from the Old Town.......

  • Haven't done it before Stewie, but I'm pretty sure the start is *in* the Old Town this year (La Cartuja stadium is closed in 2019 for renovation) - start and finish are now in a park near the river in the city centre (the street is Paseo de Las Delicias). From what I can tell, Seville seems small enough to walk across - at least for the old town. The tricky bit looks to be getting to the expo - which at the FIBES conference centre is well out of town...
  • Cracking event! Not big and flash but well run with plenty of passion. Pancake flat. Inexpensive and convenient flights from LGW. Airport very close to very attractive city. And yesterday's event enjoyed glorious weather too. Excellent w/e away.

    stewie, thanks for the feedback. Having enjoyed events in Valencia and Barcelona (and heard good things about Seville too), this one is definitely on my list for a future year. Glad you had such a good weekend!
