The Young Swiss runner, who has the best European time of half marathon, will run the eDreams Mitja BCN with the aim of beating the Swiss time in this distance.

The promising young star of running in Switzerland, Julien Wander who is only 21 years old, has chosen the eDreams Mitja BCN to make the best time of the half marathon distance of his country. The swiss record in this distance is for Abraham Tadesse with a time of 1h00’24’’, achieved it in Barcelona in 2015. He actually got the best personal record and the best Swiss record.  

Wanders made his debut this year in the Half Marathon of Stramilano, getting the 5th best time of Europe thanks to its 1h01’24’. The young runner, who lives in Kenia since he was 17 years old, wants to become part of the history of his country by achieving a better time than his country-fellowman at the eDreams Mitja Barcelona 2018.

Just few weeks ago, Julien Wanders made a Swiss record in 10k in the South-African city of Durban, with a time of 28.13. The fast course of the Barcelona half marathon has been crucial for Wanders to decide. Every year many European elite athletes see in Barcelona one of the the best cities to improve their times. Part of it is thanks to the technical characteristics of the course which have helped to athletes such as Florence Kiplagat to achieve the Female World Record in half marathon two years in a row.

Thanks to a beautiful and fast course and the fantastic runner’s services that the organization offers, the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona is what it is nowadays, one of the best half-marathons in Europe with 17.7000 participants in its last edition.
