The kenyan Mark Korir set a new record (2:07:39) at the 11th Zurich Malaga Marathon, last test of the RFEA 2021 calendar that had not been held for two years due to the pandemic.

In second place was Nguse Amlosom (2:08:23) and closed the Solomon Kirwa podium (2:08:43).

The race started at 8:45 am from the Paseo del Parque, the historic center of the city, with a tour of places such as the promenade, the José María Martín Carpena pavilion or the La Rosaleda stadium. Since 2019, a mandatory stop due to the health situation, the Zurich Malaga Marathon returned to the capital with record numbers of registrations with 8,500 in total, also counting the half marathon, which represents 1,500 more participants than in the last edition of 2019, where Kenyan Martin Cheruiyot and Ethiopian Selamawit Getnet Tsegaw were the winners.

In the 21,097 km of the half marathon, the La Mancha athlete Fernando González, with a time of 01:07:31, took the victory ahead of Nicolás Dalmasso (01:08:35) and Hernán Huaita (01:08:47).
