92% OF THE ATHLETES WOULD RUN THE ZURICH MARATÓ BARCELONA AGAIN
A marathon that invites you to return. This is the conclusion of the survey made with the 2019 edition participants and the results are conclusive: 92% would run the Zurich Marató Barcelona again and 58% of the respondents had already run it previously.
- 84% of the runners assess the services offered during the race as 'Excellent' and 'Very Good'
- More than 2,000 participants responded to the survey
The general evaluation of the services that are not part of the race itself (for example number pick up, newsletters, web site or app) reaches 83% putting the ratings 'very satisfied' and 'quite satisfied' together. The other respondents feel satisfied (14%), fairly satisfied (1%), not satisfied (1%) and NS / NR (2%).
Services during the race, highly valued
On the other hand, the services offered during the 42 kilometers show even better results. Aspects as important and delicate in a marathon as the access to the starting line (47% excellent and 37% very good) and the refreshment stations (57% excellent and 26% very good) are assessed in a very positive way.
The new circuit, that was very generous with the elite athletes, allowing them to pulverize the best male and female marks of the Zurich Marató Barcelona, was also highly evaluated by the amateur runners. 77% say they feel very satisfied or fairly satisfied with the route. As for the satisfaction with the finishing time, we must bear in mind that last March 10 was a hot day in Barcelona, so not everyone could meet their expectations regarding personal marks. The 22% that declare feeling little or not at all satisfied should train more for future editions.
The Expo Sports, the largest sports fair organized in Spain, had a positive outcome as well. 41%, out of the more than 2,000 participants of the Marató who responded to the survey, said they bought something during the fair that happened on Friday and Saturday before the race.
