The BMW Lurauto hosts the 38th San Sebastian Marathon EDP for more experienced athletes, a race of 42.195 kilometers. Definitely a tough challenge, it is especially designed for the most demanding riders. The second step comprises the Half Marathon, whose members will travel 21,097 kilometers, a negligible distance and not suitable for anyone. Meanwhile, the 10 Km race is intended for everyone, because the goal is not to leave anyone with the desire to participate out of the fun event. The latter route is completely flat and is performed by the most emblematic streets of the city, which is presented as a different and fun way to discover the most special places in Donosti.
