After the Barcelona Half Marathon was postponed last year once to the fall, the Mitja Marató Barcelona could take place this year again in the first half of the year.

This year, however, was not run in February, as was always the case up to and including 2020, but at the beginning of April. Hopes were also high that a similarly large starting field as still in early 2020 would be achieved again.

20,000 half marathon runners in Barcelona

In 2020, 18,530 runners finished the Barcelona Half Marathon, cementing the event as one of the largest half marathon events in Europe. Last fall, there were "only" 7,616 finishers due to restrictions.

Fast course through the city

In return, there were outstanding times last year. For the Ethiopian Haftu Teklu needed only 59:39 minutes for the 21.1 kilometers. It was only the third half marathon time under one hour in Barcelona after 2018 and 2020. Teklu also improved the course record by five seconds. In the women's race, Florence Kiplagat's 1:05:09 has been unmatched since 2015. The Kenyan even won the Barcelona Marathon four times in a row between 2014 and 2017. The defending champion in the women's race was Sandrafelis Tuei (1:07:12 hours), also an athlete from Kenya.

Numerous professionals were also signed up for 2022, primarily from African countries, of course. They certainly had the potential to run similar times to the previous course records in Catalonia's metropolis of millions. Co-favorites to win included Kenya's Margaret Kipkemboi, who was runner-up in the 5,000 meters in 2019.

Course record double for Haftu Teklu

At the top of the men it was finally a repetition of last year. Haftu Teklu was not only able to defend his victory, but also to improve the course record by a few seconds, as he did in 2021. After he succeeded in 2021 with 59:39 minutes an improvement of five seconds, it was this time with 59:06 minutes even more than 30 seconds. However, this increase was necessary for the Ethiopian, because the top 5 were separated by only 12 seconds at the Barcelona Half Marathon 2022.

The seven-year-old women's record almost fell as well. In the end, favorite Magaret Kipkemboi was only a few seconds off the pace. The runner from Kenya won in 1:05:26 hours, only 17 seconds behind the course record.
