Zurich Marató Barcelona

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Since celebrating its first edition in 1978, the Zurich Barcelona Marathon has climbed to the fourth place in the European ranking – currently only London, Berlin and Paris have more runners. The reasons behind the marathon’s appeal to runners are not difficult to find – the reasonably flat route passes by some of the city’s major monuments and sites such as the Agbar Tower, the Pedrera and the Sagrada Família, between its starting and finishing points in Avinguda María Cristina, near the monumental Plaça Espanya. Those who prefer to cheer on the runners rather than competing themselves may be interested in the 41 cheering points dotted around the route that the race will follow, which will provide entertainment for spectators in the form of music (everything from Venezuelan rock and roll to percussion), folklore groups and traditional dance.
