Marathon Parade is designed so that there are always 42 sculptures representing each kilometer of a marathon.

The streets, parks, historic centers of the host city become a museum and the public exhibition ends every kilometer of the city's marathon day.

Marathon Parade is a perfect setting for all the artists of the host city. Three levels of artists are contemplated, one is that of painters, sculptors and artists recognized for their work; Another level is that of influencers of running or sports, public figures, musicians with artistic skills who can develop a work; The third level is open for students and beginners who previously show their creativity to be able to take them into account. In all three levels artists are challenged to perform their work according to their essence as artists.
