Behobia San Sebastian
Behobia San Sebastian 20k
The Behobia San Sebastian 20k in Spain! Please note, the details below relate to 2012. The information for 2013 will be available soon.
More than 23,000 runners will be taking part in one of Europe's most popular races, which is being run for the 48th time in 2012. This was the first time Sports Tours International are offering this exciting 20k course.
The Behobia San Sebastian is definitely one of the most exciting running races in the World. Although only 20km, it has two very hard climbs, one after 6km, Gaintxurizketa, which takes 2km to reach 80m in height, and then another after 16km, which takes 1km to climb 50m to the top of the Miracruz, from which it's all downhill into San Sebastian itself.
The Behobia run starts near Irun, so it is best to take the train from the centre of San Sebastian to the start and then run back!
If you want to run this 20km event, accompanied by thousands of cheerers, and run across the spectacular finish line in the centre of San Sebastian then keep reading...
