The Zurich Maratón San Sebastián is much more than a sporting event. San Sebastián, home to the second-oldest marathon in Spain, has everything you would expect from a weekend of sports tourism. It is a mass event with thousands of participants in search of an amazing personal experience in one of the most beautiful cities on Earth.
The Zurich Maratón San Sebastián blends sport, tourism and citizen celebrations. The city has marked the date of the marathon in red on its sports calendar over the years and never fails to show its support for the runners on the day of the race.
After a year spent making changes and revamping the event from the bottom up, the Zurich Maratón San Sebastián is reborn stronger than ever to give participants a magical experience in which the iconic landscape of San Sebastián takes centre stage. What makes the Maratón special is its host city, with its open, inclusive and cosmopolitan spirit, its character and tradition, a past steeped in the Belle Époque that has left its mark in its architecture, its culture and its world-famous cuisine.
The main goal of the event is to make participants the stars of the race. This unique journey starts when you sign up for the race and ends when you cross the finish line of the Zurich Maratón San Sebastián. You are all welcome, from Gipuzkoan women to men who come from the other side of the world. Together with hundreds of volunteers, performers, medical professionals, physiotherapists and citizens, every single one of you helps make the Zurich Maratón San Sebastián a unique experience in San Sebastián, a place like no other.
