Is there any other way to travel Spain? I prefer discovering the sights by running with a local guide. When I went to Mallorca, I looked for a sightrunning company and I found Mallorca Running Tours. I spoke to Álvaro through by mail about the date and place. He was very helpful in choosing the right route. Unfortunately he was not on Mallorca and I ran with Anabel. This was even better. She is from Mallorca and knew a lot about the history of Palma de Mallorca and she had many useful tips for the rest of my stay. I loved to see the similarities in history it has with Valencia. She told me that she was training for the marathon in New York. I followed her through Facebook and she did it. She ran the marathon. Great achievement for her and an enorm motivation for me. I would love to do the same this year in Valencia.
After this wonderful experience, I decided to book another tour when I was on a trip with my parents. We were on our way to Portugal and stopped for a night in Madrid. I already heard about this Dutch guy who founded Madrid Sightrunning. The next morning Robert picked me up from the hotel. He took me to the Retiro Park. I was there before, but never knew it was so beautiful and so big. We talked about sightrunning and our travel experiences. I loved the photos he made. You can see I had a hard time to keep up with him. He is a really fast athlete and that made this the perfect training for me. As we are in the same team being sponsored by Caser Expat, I know I will him again. I am sure I will do some other tours in other cities. It is a great way to travel Spain, while staying in form and having fun. When you are in Valencia book a tour here: Go! Running Tours Valencia
