¡Barcelona Marathon!

This sunday (March 1) is a day for everyone who wants to cruise through this beautiful city, in the Barcelona Marathon. The Marathon has been running since 1978. For the one’s not in shape enough to finish 42 kilometers (phew!),  there are also 5 and 10 km races sharing the start line with the marathon.

The course goes pass sights such as Camp Nou, La Pedrera and Sagrada Familia, and starts and finish in front of the Magic Fountain. Wonderful! Half of the runners (7.500) were foreigners last year, and I understand why they all choose to run in a city like Barcelona!

The field of runners is quite small, so the center doesn’t get really crowded.

If you want to be part of the Marathon check out the official website for registration and more information,
It seems like there will be more than 10,000 participants this year, so hurry up!
