On the first day, you will get a taste of what walking in Marbella is. There are ever-changing surroundings and stunning views, and you will see part of the Marbella famous beaches. From the Plaza del Mar, you walk through the north-western part of the city and return to the Paseo Maritimo from Puerto Banús.
Day 1 is not too challenging yet, but an excellent way to warm up your muscles and get used to the mild (and often even warm) autumn climate.
Start your day with a nice cup of coffee at the Walking Village. Alongside the route, you will find bars and restaurants that serve all kinds of foods and drinks. We know our walkers well, so in the places where you most need to refresh your energy, you will find a food station with snacks, coffee and other refreshments.
Our volunteers will scan your chip at the different checkpoints you will pass. In this way, we more or less know where you are and know that you've walked the route altogether. You can use the restrooms at these checkpoints, and there will be refreshments.
You will walk with others. Our safety cars will always be on the route to help out if needed and coordinate with the police and ambulances, who are present along the routes. In case of an emergency during the event, you can call us on our emergency number at +34 623 329 969. (also printed in your Info Guide) TIP: add this to your phone!
Join thousands of walkers from all over the world.
