Racing Round Ibiza

The traditional and 17th annual race up to Ibiza's cathedral

The traditional and 17th annual race up to Ibiza's cathedral way up high atop D'alt Vila took place again on New Year's Eve. This year a record number of runners participated – 235 in all – to cover the 3800 metres from the start point near Marina Botafoch to the Santa Maria Cathedral.The race was won by a local athlete Mohamed Tissei in a time of 7 minutes and 13 seconds.

Bluesmafia

Later that day local band Bluesmafia were on a similar race round Ibiza. Band leader and music promoter Miquel Botja showed just what a 'Goodfella' he is by playing sets in the specially erected marquees in Santa Eulalia, then in San Antonio and finishing off in San Jose at 4am on New Year's Day. We caught the final performance and are pleased to say that the boys really are the hardest working band in Ibiza show-business!
