With this summer heat, one feels more like heading out to enjoy the sun, bars and strolls around the city center. And what goes better with these things than a good fried calamari sandwich (very typical in Madrid)? Here you have the list of the best places to eat these famous sandwiches throughout the capital.


100 Kilometers in 24 Hours

Men (or women) cannot only live on beer, pinchos and fried calamari sándwiches. It´s also important to take care of our bodies through exercise. And what´s better than a no-competitive running race like “100 kilometers in 24 hours”? As its name indicates, the objective of the race is to complete this distance in a time frame of 24 hours. You can enter as one-person or participate in a team of two or three people. You can also compete by biking instead of running, but if biking you have to finish in 10 hours. Are you ready to sweat?

Where: Ciudad Deportiva Juan Antonio Samaranch in Colmenar Viejo. You can arrive in bus (L-1 Circular Colmenar Viejo) or in the Cercanías rail  (station Colmenar Viejo).

When: June 6th starting at 12:00pm and ending June 7th at 12:00pm.

Price: 19 euros.
