A personal message from the race director:

Music Marathon Festival intention is to increase tourism on Lanzarote, by creating a new sports and cultural event, which is EXTRAORDINARY.

This event is created so that everyone can participate, with a kids run, you can either walk or run on the route where there is live music which animates participant and spectators, then ends with a concert.

The short-term goal is to fill Puerto del Carmen up with happy and active people. The long intended goal of this event is to increase the quality tourism in Lanzarote.”

Project background / milestones and expected results: Bring the smile back to Puerto del Carmen

Music Marathon Festival was started in 2008 due to the world crisis created, the tourists number has dropped to 60% in Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote.

Our help is help for self-help, with the motto we have to do something and NOW, the only thing we can have in the first place is to bring people to the event, giving them a beautiful and very different experience, which helps to bring more tourists to Lanzarote and thereby improve the local economy, as well as the 2 different help organizations we also encourage the participants to support.

This process starts by word of mouth locally, internationally through journalists and other media using our tourist office.

It is our hope that tourists who are here on the day will support the event either as a participant or spectator, usually on a weekly 30,000 tourists and we expect a group size between 500 to 1000 first year

Half Marathon races (20,000m)

Quartz Marathon races (10,000m)

Walk (5,000m)

Kids’ race (800m) (1,609m)
