How is the Seville Half Marathon?

The Seville half marathon is an excellent choice if you’re looking for your first half marathon abroad. As well as the flat and fast course, the event is very well organised, with plenty of volunteers and workers available to support you in both English and Spanish.

Last year (2024) there were over 1300 foreign runners, from 50 different countries, making up around 11% of the total runners, so the event is is very international and friendly to tourists running the route. Announcements and signage are made in both English and Spanish with everything easy to follow and understand.

The half marathon also draws a large crowd of spectators around the city, and it’s one of the most supported runs I’ve seen in my time – with the locals enthusiastic and loud when cheering on the runners.

Getting your Race Number and Starter Information

In order to get your starter information pack, race t-shirt, and race number you need to pick it up in person before the race (on the Friday or Saturday), so be aware of this if travelling from abroad.

This information can be picked up from Centro Deportivo San Pablo in the centre of Seville, and make sure you bring along your ID (passport if coming from abroad).

Staying in Seville during the Half Marathon

The majority of runners come from across Spain and don’t stay in Seville during the race, this combined with a fairly limited number of runners participating, means the accommodation and hotel situation is normally fairly reasonable, and you can find good deals if you book well in advance.
