All the sports events in Ibiza this autumn 2021
After the hiatus enforced by the pandemic, Ibiza has recovered its sports spirit with more enthusiasm than ever. In fact, this week, the island will be hosting one of the most important races, the Ibiza Marathon, that was meant to be in spring but had to be postponed to 2nd October. It will start from Ibiza harbour and finish at Santa Eulària des Riu harbour. After 20 Km, runners will reach Santa Gertrudis before heading east, towards the finishing line. But apart from this outstanding race that has become one of the key sports events in Ibiza, there are other events worth mentioning for this autumn 2021.
