La Guía de Ibiza - The Ibiza Guide

The island of the runners

In recent years Formentera has become one of the favorite destinations of the ‘runners’. Starting in March, the main events on the sports calendar are for those who love racing and hiking. In April, the race Far a Far goes from the lighthouse at the Cap de Barbaria to the one on La Mola. Yet, the most popular race takes place in the month of May; the half marathon starts at the lighthouse on La Mola and crosses the whole island passing by the salt flats and ends at the port of La Savina. This year there are 3000 runners who do not want to miss this race, because it has become a must for the runners of many European countries.
