The hotels, restaurants and shops are the first to notice the additional increase of customers. But also for the delivery of various other products and services we were able to attract entrepreneurs from the local region. Beyond that, the organization together with three local charities that are present during the event at the start and finish combine their great activities for the attention of the whole public. Participants can enroll if they make a donation to Aspandem, Piel de Mariposa (Debra Spain) or Triple A. The organization provides an additional 2 euros extra for each donated 10 euros. Participants will receive bottled water from Agua de Mijas and the food truck this year in the hands of Huerta Pavon from Coin. On the menu are sandwiches of artisan’s baker that integrates products from local farmers. “The province of Malaga has a lot to offer in gastronomy.
We want our participants to benefit from local entrepreneurs and involving smaller entrepreneurs into the organization of M4DW, thus we really love to stimulate the regional economy, ” said Maria Kupers, responsible for the production and communication of the event. At the start and finish square a tent is provided for the complete audience where the municipality of Marbella and Costa del Sol Turismo y Planificación provide information about the attractions in the area.
