BIB Colours and start groups

The race departure is organised in 19 groups, divided firstly by colours and then by groups.

The bib colours are allocated based on the records previously achieved both in Behobia San Sebastián or in other half marathons. Only records achieved in the last three years will be accepted, and you will be asked to attach any proof upon inscription.

If proof is not given, and a colour other than white is chosen (white does not need proof, as it’s the last colour), the organisation will change to white or, otherwise, the colour that corresponds if you have run the Behobia over the last three years.

You can find your group and starting time in your bib. It is important to place yourself behind the banner with your group number. The starting time can be affected for different reasons and not match with your bib; however, your group will always be the correct one. If you start ahead of your departure group, you will be disqualified.

You can check here all the relevant information regarding the times needed for each bib colour..

Cloakroom

IMPORTANT :
the backpacks cannot be heavier than 5kg and we highly recommend not to leave any valuables or breakable items, since the organisation will not be held responsible. The runners will have to leave their backpacks in the designated cloakroom, that corresponds to the last two numbers of their bib.

The participants can leave their bags, properly closed, with the sticker stating their bib number in any of the following delivery points:

Before the race

The backpacks should be dropped off at the Race Expo (6th and 7th of November). After the race, you can pick up your backpack in Plaza Gipuzkoa (Finishing line).

NO DROP OFF POINT AVAILABLE IN ANY OTHER LOCATION BEFORE THE RACE

  

Race day

San Sebastián (finishing area)

  • Zuhaizti Sports Centre (from 7:30 am on the race day). The collection will take place in the same place.
  • Plaza Gipuzkoa (from 7:30 am on the race day). The collection will take place in the same place.

Behobia (starting area)

Meeting point for family and friends

The meeting point for family and friends is located at Plaza Oquendo, where signs from A to Z are set up, so you could meet by your surname starting letter.


Showers

There are showers available at the end of the race. The locations are:

  • Public beach showers in La Concha: they fill up quite quickly.
  • Zuhaizti Sports Centre: near the finishing line.
  • Anoeta Velodrome: reachable with the shuttles departing from Avenida de la Libertad. This is the best option if you have parked your car in the area or have come with a scheduled coach.
  • Manteo Sports Centre: in Gros area.
  • Pio Baroja Sports Centre: in Antiguo area.

Parking

The finishing line is located right in the city centre, therefore the access with a private car is the worst option available. The best option is to park in one of the car parks located on the outskirts and catch the bus to get to the city centre.
