THE INSCRIPTIONS OF THE EDREAMS MITJA MARATÓ DE BARCELONA, TO PACE OF RECORD

24/10/2018

The interest for the next edition of the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona, to be celebrated the 10th of February 2019, is maximum. At this moment, such a high pace of inscriptions had never been registered.


When it remains 3 months and a half for the race, the pace of inscriptions overcomes in more than 12% the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona 2018 and in 6% the edition of 2017, which achieved the record of participation with 17.700 participants.


If this pace continues, the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona 2019 could establish a new record of participants.


This increasing interest by running the half marathon of Barcelona is due to the quality jump that the race has experienced, gathering the fruits of the work realized in the last years.


In this sense, less than one year ago, the eDreams Mitja Marató de Barcelona obtained the Gold Label that the IAAF grants (International Associations of Athletics Federations). This is the maximum distinction given to athletics races. Parameters as the quantity of elite athletes, antidoping controls, diffusion in television or the services to the runners are also considered. In this last section, the water station points, the pacemakers for all the levels, the animation points or the cloakroom are some of the strong points of the race of Barcelona.


Without forgetting a very fast circuit in which several world records in feminine category have been achieved and where popular runners achieve very good records. In the last edition, the Kenyan Muse Wasihun finished for the first time in less than one hour (59’44”) beating the previous record in hands of Eliud Kipchoge (60’04”) current world record-holder of marathon.
