The 2017 Marathon of Santa Cruz will be broadcast live by Televisión Canaria.

The fourth edition of the athletic event, which will be held in the capital of Tenerife on November 12th, can therefore be followed in all homes of the archipelago.

The Mayor, José Manuel Bermúdez, signed the agreement with the president of the RTVC, Santiago Negrín. Councillor for Sports, Verónica Meseguer, and the director of the athletic event, César Dorta, were also present at the ceremony.

The agreement involves the retransmission, live, of the three distances that in this fourth edition (8, 21 and 42 kilometres) that this year, in addition, will be the headquarters of the Half Marathon Canary Islands Championship.

Sr. Bermudez highlighted how the marathon is growing each year, with more entries each time and for November 12th, already having nearly 500 runners enrolled.

Sr. Negrin stressed that Television Canaria “has achieved something historic by bringing to all the homes of the archipelago a sporting event of the first magnitude that will also collaborate in the revitalisation of the city to be broadcast by public television.”

“It is going to be an appointment in which runners will have the opportunity to perform their favourite activity through the main streets of Santa Cruz and in which, this time, they will be able to be followed by family and friends from home through television, ” he added.
