Second best attended 21K race, and fastest women's time

Barcelona claims title of second fastest Spanish half marathon


The 2023 half-marathon season in Spain is over.

The four most important 21.097km road races in Spain (belonging to the Plátano de Canarias Circuit and being the only race not integrated in a marathon, excluding the Behobia SS because it is 20K) are nowadays the Seville half-marathon, the Valencia half-marathon, the Malaga half-marathon and the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks.

The Seville half-marathon is the first one that always opens the calendar, which this year was held on 29th of January, followed by the Barcelona half-marathon, which reached its 33rd edition on 19th of February. Lastly, the Valencia (22th of October) and Málaga (29th of October) races were held last October.

Having already held the four most important half-marathons in the country this year 2023 and with the data of the rankings, it can be concluded that the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks has been the second fastest half-marathon (although in the women’s category it was the fastest) and the second most popular in Spain this year, only 550 runners fewer than the Valencia half-marathon. The third place is shared by the Malaga half-marathon in terms of best times (speed) and the Seville half-marathon in terms of number of male and female runners.
