MORE than 4,000 runners are expected to take part in the 21st edition of the Almeria Half Marathon.
An estimated 4,600 people will take part in the annual race, which officially begins at 10am this Sunday.
This year’s Almeria City Half Marathon will be the pinnacle point of the Runners Fair weekend, which starts on Saturday at 3pm with the Corridor Fair in the Palace of Mediterranean Games.
There will be exhibitions, animations, conferences, photo booths, master classes, concerts and raffles before the big event on Sunday. Deputy of Sports for Almeria, Angeles Martinez, has highlighted the importance of the half marathon to the Province.
He said: “Although it takes place in the capital, it is a very important test for the province of Almeria because it is the one with the greatest participation of all those that are organised and we have not hesitated to join because of its great scope at all levels: economic, participation and human and logistic resources.”
