Barcelona Marathon is one of the most popular and attractive marathons in Europe

Barcelona Marathon

When: 11 March 2018
Where: Barcelona, Spain

About: The course in Barcelona is one of the most attractive in Europe and is relatively flat, making it ideal for achieving a good time.

The favorable climatology that characterizes Barcelona combined with a fully urban circuit that passes through the main landmarks of great interest for the runner. With very few hills or inclines, the course is very flat and fast, and suits first time runners, or those going for a personal best!

Runners will start below the green hills of Montjuic Park in front of the Magic Fountain. You then race thorough the city enjoying many of the sites of the Catalan capital. Along the way you will see Camp Nou (home to Barcelona Football Club), Gaudi's magnificent La Pedrera and his cathedral masterpiece Sagrada Familia. The great finish is just a short distance from La Rambla and back at the green hills of Montjuic Park, near the Magic Fountain.
