THE anti-domestic violence ‘Carrera Hay Salida’ race returns to Madrid for the fourth time.

The event aims to raise awareness and promote a “society free of domestic violence” as well as supporting the victims of abuse.

Organisers of the event, Mia magazine, 20 minutos newspaper and the Ministry for Health, Social Services and Equality have named Queen Letizia as the honorary president of the event.


It costs €7.60 to sign up and entrants must be over 14 years old to run the five kilometre route on June 11.

Funds raised will be donated to charities dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence, such as Generando Igualdad and the Luz Casanova foundation.

The race’s message is clear. “There is a way out. You are not alone. We support you, help you overcome it and stop it reoccurring in your life.”

Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso is among the many Spanish celebrities and politicians who support the event.
