The registration period for Torrevieja’s half marathon, set to take place on 26 February 2023, opened today and will remain open until a few days before the event.
The price is 15 euro for the half marathon and 10 euro for the 5-kilometre race. The categories for the half marathon will be from Sub20 (+18 years) to Master 75 (+75 years), while for the 5k race it will be from Sub16 (+14 years) to Master 75 (+75). A novelty in this 35th edition will be the four special Inclusion categories: runners with physical disabilities in wheelchairs, runners with sensory disabilities (auditory and visual), runners with physical disabilities and runners with intellectual disabilities.
The Mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, together with the Councillor for Sports, Diana Box, president of the Torrevieja Athletics Club, José Manuel Pizana, and Luis Manuel Corchete, Olympic athlete and organiser of the event, presented the 35th Torrevieja Half Marathon, which recovers its traditional date of celebration, on February 26, 2023.
The test circuit is approved and is part of the national calendar of the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation. Throughout the route there will be a great deployment with health care to attend to any incident and a field hospital will be installed at the finish line. In addition to Local Police and Civil Protection personnel, some 200 volunteers are expected, who will be distributed throughout the test route.
The organisers expect some 1,200/1,400 runners in this next edition in 2023.
