  • Manuel Bravo and former Olympian Álvaro Fernández won the 5km and 10km routes respectively

The second edition of the Carrera Litoral Holiday World Benalmádena drew around 850 people, including the mayor of Benalmádena, which was over a hundred more than the previous edition. This year it was planned so that the races of ten and five kilometres, for the adults and for children, would be held simultaneously.

The weather was perfect for running and the route was very scenic, keeping the runners in sight of the sea. The finishing touch was a huge paella at the end of the race.

The fun run was to support the Proyecto Hombre collective, a charity to give motivation, therapy and help getting back to work for reformed drug addicts and substance abusers.

The winner of the 10km category was Nerja resident and ex-Olympian, Álvaro Fernández and the winner of the 5km route was Manuel Bravo.
