The running world has experienced a boom in recent years. The city of Barcelona has also noticed an increase in followers which, along with great organisation and the many attractions that the city has to offer, has seen the number of runners of the Mitja Marató de Barcelona as well as the Marató de Barcelona continue to grow.


Barcelona is a trendy city and the proof of this is the millions of tourists that spend their holidays here every year. The wide range of cultural and gastronomic treats that Barcelona offers adds to the eperience for runners and their supporters who're able to wander the streets of Barcelona, also enjoying some of the most emblematic sites such as Plaça de Catalunya, hub of the city, the Barcelona coast, or the final arrival at the stately Arc de Triomf.


The next edition of the Mitja Marato de Barcelona will be held on February 26th 2012 and guarantees its runners an enviable course and a pleasant climate for their journey.


The Marató de Barcelona has gained popularity and prestige in recent years. The international promotion campaigns, the services and good organisation offered to the participants, the excellent times achieved by the elite athletes, a superb climate and the tourist attractions have made the number of runners in this race exceeded the 15,000 participants in 2011. One of the most notable facts is the large number of foreigners who take part in the Marató, almost 50% of the registered participants are from outside Spain.


For 2012, the date chosen for the Marato de Barcelona celebration will be Sunday March 25th, and it will count with such attractive endorsements as a course along the main tourist attractions of Barcelona like the Sagrada Familia, Paseo de Gracia, the Columbus Monument and the Ramblas, these are just some of the streets through which the race will pass. Without a doubt, a tour of the city.


Sport and leisure combined in 42km distance. Barcelona, a new experience.
