At 4:30 p.m., the president of Formentera, Alejandra Ferrer, cut the tape and the test started. Immediately, a first group was formed in which the first three classified were found. But from the third kilometer, Caplliure broke the race and at kilometer 10 he passed with more than a minute of difference over Fernández, a distance that has been increasing in the second part of the race.

The women’s test has been more even, with the first three classified separated by just over a minute at the finish line, but as in the boys’ test, the winner already dominated the race at kilometer 10 with a minute advantage and then he has managed to manage that distance to win the finish line located in Port de La Salvina.

The Trasmapi company will offer two extra ferry services to facilitate the maritime links between Ibiza and Formentera on the occasion of the 1/2 Marathon of Formentera.

Thus, on October 8, a last boat will leave at 23:00 from Ibiza to Formentera for all those runners who have landed on the island at the last minute. This link will not appear advertised on the web since it is an exclusive service that they offer us on the occasion of the celebration of the 1/2 Marathon.

Likewise, on October 9, a boat will leave to return from Formentera to Ibiza with the car at 9:30 p.m. and that is also added as an exclusive service for all runners, apart from the Castavi, which will leave at 7:30 p.m. This 9:30 p.m. boat will not be announced on its website either, but it will still set sail.

BRING YOUR BATTERIES TO LIFE

07/10/2021 // Unisport Consulting

It turns out that one day the people of Ecopilas contacted us and asked us to be part of the 1/2 Marathon of Formentera and we suggested that they do something for the Island and for the environment.
In general, they were delighted to tell us that not only would they have a detail with everyone who on race day had batteries to recycle, but that the winners of the average and the 8-kilometer race would take a gift suitcase. What you think? We love the idea!
