Marbella Half Marathon 2015
The annual Marbella Half Marathon was held this year on Sunday 27 September,
It was a beautiful sunny day in Marbella – not too hot, but ideal for running a half marathon. The competitors arrived at the Palacio de Congresos just before 10.00 am, picked up their numbers and headed for the start line.
This year, the organizers achieved their registration limit of 2,500 runners two weeks before the day of the race. Runners from Marbella, Andalucia, many other regions of Spain and other European countries took part.
The event began in Calle Jacinto Benavente. The competitors headed towards the Old Town, then down to the Paseo Maritimo and onto Puerto Banús. They then returned to Marbella, finishing on the terraces above the Puerto Deportivo.
The winner was Mario Garcia from Atletismo Málaga in a time of about 1 hour and 9 minutes. Rafa Bermúdez from Equipo Trotamundos finished second and Christian Benítez from Club Atletismo Málaga finished third.
