5 Can’t-Miss Spring Races

5 Can’t-Miss Spring Races

On March 13, we ran our first race (!), the 7th annual Carrera de la Esperanza. We ran around the lake and through the trees on the most beautiful, sunny day. It was a 5k and it took place in Casa de Campo.

We were pleasantly surprised that the race gave us the opportunity to see a familiar spot in a new way. It got us thinking; what other races could give us a new perspective of our beloved Madrid, with the added bonus of a post-race high?
