The Port of Almería is gearing up for the sixteenth edition of its 10-kilometre race, set to take place on Sunday, April 7.

Registration closes on April 5, and interested participants can sign up through the race’s website, www.10kmpuertodealmeria.com.

Organised by the Aqueatacamos sports club and sponsored by the Port Authority of Almería, the race sees the port facilities transformed into a track.

The race kicks off at 10:30 a.m. and concludes at 12:00 p.m., and takes about one and a half hours, although the current circuit record stands at 30 minutes and 41 seconds, set by athlete Rachid Bouazza in 2011.
