Running of the Balls

Calles de Mataelpino.

San Bartolomé Festivities – August 24

The Running of the Balls is an unique experience exclusive to Mataelpino consisting of some very special runnings. It’s a race open to the whole public divided into two categories. In the adult running, a giant ball of expanding foam weighing 150 kilos and measuring 3 metres in diameter chases runners down the path leading to the main square. In the children’s race, the ball weighs much less, but is no less exciting! The idea has reached every corner of the globe and boasts more and more participants each year. We encourage you to visit us during the Summer Holiday the week of August 24th to take part in and enjoy these “unique runnings” with us.
