With these impressive figures, a new edition of the Barcelona 2023 Edreams Half Marathon was presented. The event has now definitively left the pandemic behind and was celebrated without any kind of restriction and in a festive atmosphere reminiscent of its greatest period of splendour, which ranged from 2015 to 2020
The runners completed the 21.097-kilometre route through the center of Barcelona on a splendid day for competing – starting with a cool temperature and not excessively high at the finish, and also without the moderate wind affecting their performances.
