Due to the announcement by the President of the Government of Spain that the General Election will take place on Sunday 28 April 2019 – the scheduled race date of the 2019 EDP Rock ‘n’ Roll Madrid Marathon & ½ – a joint decision has been made by the City Council of Madrid, event organizers and all city departments involved, to move the event date to Saturday 27 April 2019.


All event formats will continue as usual on Saturday 27 April with the 10km starting at 8am, and the Marathon and Half Marathon starting at 8:45am.

We are committed to operating a top-quality running experience for all participants and together with city officials have considered all available options to minimise the impact on runners, especially those traveling from outside of Madrid and Spain.

Runners are requested to note the following important changes:


  • The Marathon and Half Marathon will take place on Saturday 27 April 2019 starting at 8:45am.
  • The 10K will take place on Saturday 27 April 2019 starting at 8:00am.
  • EXPODEPOR- Expo Sports (venue for collection of bib numbers and goodie bags) will take place at IFEMA Feria de Madrid on 25 and 26 April 2019.  Hall and opening hours to be confirmed.

Registered runners who are unable to participate on Saturday 27 April 2019 may request to transfer their entry to another runner or request a full refund of their entry fee by 23:59 (GMT+1) on Monday, 11 March 2019. More information regarding the request of transfers or refunds are available on https://www.runrocknroll.com/es/events/madrid/register/

Requests for transfers or refunds that are not received by the deadline will not be considered.


Over the past 42 years, we have hosted quality events with the highest level of professionalism and have worked hard at finding the best possible solution while considering the welfare of our athletes.  We regret the inconvenience that this required event date change may cause.  Our athletes remain our main priority and we greatly appreciate your support and understanding in the current situation.
