Chimo Bayo: "I can't think of a better way to start the year than running together on the route of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja". 
December 26, 2023

Next January 14, and for the sixth consecutive year, the icon of electronic music of the 90s will once again thrill the thousands of runners expected at the start of the race at the Paseo de la Alameda. 

This will be the sixth edition that accompanies us at the start of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja. The icon of electronic music who made 'Así me gusta a mí' the anthem of a whole generation, the famous DJ Chimo Bayo, will once again entertain the thousands of runners who are expected this January 14 at the Paseo de la Alameda. 

To the rhythm of his famous 'Hu-Ha' and many other songs that made dance to those who went on a musical route back in the 90s, Chimo Bayo will be in charge, along with Joxe Fernandez and his team, to motivate the participants of the fastest 10K in the world. 

We asked Chimo himself if he is surprised to see the runners dancing and jumping just before taking the start of his 10K, and he tells us that the first year "I was surprised, yes. It's a gift to see that enthusiasm. Many of those who used to go on the route in the 90s are now runners who participate in this event. It's a fun, beautiful and different experience". 

In the 90s," continues Chimo Bayo, "I felt connected to the people who came to see me DJ and dance to my music, but now I also feel connected to the runners. Now we continue dancing, but on a different route, a different route, the asphalt route. And it's also special. 

The Bakalao Route is unlikely to ever come back, "but that's the beauty of it, that it lasted for a while and will always be a wonderful memory that can never be erased." "Now, the only route that exists is the 10K." 

When asked about his repertoire for this edition of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja, he tells us that the classic will not be missing, "that never fails. But we are also preparing some surprises with a special remix ". And stay tuned, because in a few days Chimo also has a surprise for all those registered on our Instagram account...

An impressive year with film debut 

There are only a few days left to say goodbye to the year and Chimo wanted to take stock of this 2023 that is about to end. "We finished the tour this month, a few weeks ago we had the last performance. A year with more than 50 performances. It has been an impressive year". 

In addition, Chimo Bayo has released two new songs: "Que nadie duerma" and "No paro ni un instante", two titles that describe him quite well. He also makes a very positive and special balance of his participation in the Arroz La Fallera campaign, "a nice tribute to friendship, electronic music and paella, of course". 

And of course, he does not forget his film debut in the movie "Quan no acaba la nit", by the Valencian director Óscar Montón. "It has been an incredible experience. The character I play is someone much, much more dangerous than Chimo Bayo in the 90s. I play a bad guy, a very bad guy, but I think he's the kind of guy who's cool and everything". The film is already available on Movistar Plus+ and Rakuten platforms. 

Chimo Bayo kicks off the year with 10K route 

Well, this is how the year 2023 ends well for Chimo Bayo, who is part of the 10K Valencia Ibercaja family. But the new year 2024 will also start beautifully. "On Saturday, January 13, everyone goes to sleep early. You to give it all in those 10K and me to encourage and motivate you before the start as you deserve". "It will be a nice way to start the year, running together on the 10K route. I can't think of a better way.
