The eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks 2024 has sold more than 20,000 race bibs two months before the event
Last 5,000 registrations available to take part in the 34th edition of Barcelona’s Half-Marathon
With two months to go until 11th of February 2024, the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks has already had more than 20,000 registrations. Moreover, the organisers have announced that only the last 5,000 race bibs are still available. The prediction is to reach the sold out at 25,000 bibs for this next 34th edition and to beat the current historical record of participation of the race, achieved in 2020 with 23,000 registered runners.
Held uninterruptedly since its first edition in the Olympic context of 1991, the Barcelona’s Half-Marathon participation has grown exponentially until the arrival of the Covid-19 three years ago. But, having already more than 20,000 registered runners when there are still 60 days left for the celebration of its next edition, is a demonstration that this race is recovering the exponential growth of registered runners that it had year after year before the pandemic and that it is even evolving with perspectives of improvement. A figure that practically reaches the total number of participants for 2023 (21,477), which is well above that of 2022 (13,500) and which doubles the 10,000 participants of 2021.
A big party for the runners and for the whole city
For one more year, the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks is one of only three Gold Label half-marathons in Europe, along with the Valencian half-marathon and the Copenhagen half-marathon (Denmark). In fact, this race has already had this quality label since 2018, and it is one of only 13 half-marathons in the world that have been awarded this distinction in 2023.
Likewise, the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona by Brooks 2024 will probably reach 35% of registered women again and it expects to exceed 40% of international participants. Under the motto Fast or Fun but Run, the Barcelona’s half-marathon in 2024 will be an unprecedented day of popular athletics. With 25,000 participants and coinciding with the Carnival weekend, on 11th of February the streets of the Catalan capital will be filled with entertainment and activations so that runners can experience a great running party, surrounded by the warmth of the Catalan public, and reach their goals.
