Ibiza 42K Relay is the new competition offered by Ibiza Marathon on its 2019 edition. Runners will be able to complete the marathon course in couples. They will make up a team and the second leg will take over at one of the most iconic areas of Ibiza: Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera.
This is already an option given at large international events as an alternative to the marathon. It is a new way to experience the Ibiza Marathon. This way all runners can enjoy the race by splitting the distance and, in addition, they can share the event with a friend or partner.
Francisco Larrey, director of Ibiza Marathon, stated that “The Ibiza 42K Relay is a great opportunity for runners who are used to participating in races that are 15 or 20 kilometres long. We offer a different way to enjoy the marathon by taking on a challenge together and setting a common objective”. The director considers that this competition reflects the essence of Ibiza and it shows the commitment of the organization to foster deseasonalized quality sports tourism. “We have thoroughly analysed the international marathons that already offer this option and we are certain that it represents a leap in quality. It clearly matches the Run and Feel philosophy and we are going to take care of every single detail so that every participant can enjoy the race to the fullest”.
The Ibiza 42K Relay will go through the same scenic course, the only difference being that halfway through the race a second participant will take over. The first leg will start at Ibiza Port together with marathoners and will run almost until kilometre 20. There, the first leg will meet the second one who will take over within the exchange area and will run until the finish line located on the seafront promenade of Santa Eulària des Riu.
