Showing Madrid to the ‘Madrileños’

Past Thursday 25 of June we had the pleasure at MadridOutdoorSports.com to organize something that was never done before in Madrid: a running tour event that started on the prestigious roof terrace of el Círculo de Bellas Artes.

Sports brand Salomon, originally known for their skiing equipment, is nowadays one of the biggest names in trail running (if not the biggest). They’re now working their way into the traditional running market as well, with their CityTrail products.

Because Robert Nieuwland is the ambassador for these products in Madrid and, at the same time, owns outdoor sports company MadridOutdoorSports.com ‘s, he was asked to organize the promotion event for their urban running products.

To start with, the 150 available tickets were sold out in less than three days. So expectations were seemingly high. Fortunately, the result was an evening of running fun like no-one had imagined.

The base for the Running Event was the roof terrace of the capital’s famous cultural center Círculo de Bellas Artes. From there the participants, divided in groups of 30 people, enjoyed an urban running route that surprised even the local runners.

After running up the 275 steps of the Cículos de Bellas Artes’ beautiful staircase a cocktail dinner was served and the event was rounded off with some fun photo call pictures and Salomon material give aways.
