The Santa Eulària Ibiza Marathon is celebrating, as it has managed to smash the male and female records for the 22K distance.

Olympic athlete Dani Mateo has achieved the best time in the 22K distance, beating his own record of the last edition, leaving it in a time of 01:09:41. The athlete from Soria achieved it in a nice fight to beat the chilean Carlos Díaz (1:09:45), second. The italian Federico Casati was third (1:16:48). Clara López González, for her part, did the same, lowering the record by more than a minute, leaving the new one with a time of 01:23:20.

In the main distance, the marathon, it was the ethiopian athlete Monica Cheruto who won with a time of 02:48:05, ahead of Mary Marshall (3:28:45) and Anne Duijsens (3:31:12).

In this same distance, but in the men’s category, William Ruto Cheboi was the winner with an official finishing time of 2:21:16. Second crossed the finish line with another kenyan, Alex Kripop Lagat (2:28:02), with italy’s Massimiliano Andrea Milani (2:38:41) in third place.

Similarly, local runner Adrián Guirado won the 12K distance with a time of 00:40:10, while in the women’s race it was the Argentinian Fedra Luna Sambrán who won (00:42:36).

It is worth mentioning the participation of Álex Roca, who crossed the finish line under a standing ovation from the crowd, stopping the clock in 01:29:56. Similarly, Mireia Belmonte also crossed the finish line under a radiant blue sky, doing so with a time of 1:06:05.

Thus, the Santa Eulària Ibiza Marathon has flooded the island with the #RunAndFeel spirit, which has meant that thousands of runners have filled the streets of Ibiza, running through the most emblematic places of the island of Ibiza, crossing the finish line at the Paseo Marítimo in the bay of Santa Eulària des Riu. The participants of the three distances of the sporting event – marathon, 22K and 12K – have lived the sixth edition of this experience in a weekend of sport and leisure on the magical island.

The Councillor for Sports, Economy and Finance, Salvador Llosa, was in charge of kicking off the marathon in the port of Ibiza at 3:30 pm, on the shores of the Mediterranean and the Castell de Dalt Vila, recognised as a World Heritage Site. Likewise, in the town of Santa Gertrudis the new 22K distance has been launched. Carmen Ferrer, Mayoress of Santa Eulària des Riu and Antonio Marí, Sports Councillor of the Santa Eulària des Riu Town Council, were in charge of giving the starting signal to the nearly 1,300 runners. Finally, the 12K distance had the most crowded start in the port of Santa Eulària.

The runners were able to enjoy unique enclaves during the race and the varied island landscape, running through the most important towns of the magical island, rural areas, and some passing points in front of the waters of Ibiza.

Ibiza’s world-famous sunset witnessed a magical afternoon at the sixth edition of the Santa Eulària Ibiza Marathon. With these new records, the most important sporting event on the island consolidates a great event that began in 2017 and is becoming one of the most attractive experiences for running on the international calendar.

Both the team of Talentum Group, the organisers of the Santa Eulària Ibiza Marathon, and the authorities who attended on behalf of the Santa Eulària des Riu Town Hall, the Ibiza Town Hall and the Island Council itself expressed their enormous satisfaction with the great success achieved in this sixth edition, which demonstrates the island’s sporting potential and attracts seasonal and quality tourism.
