The route of the Zurich Maraton de Barcelona becomes a sight-seeing tour of Barcelona, that passes by famous landmarks such as the Camp Nou (FC Barcelona) , La Pedrera or Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia.
This excellent distance race will bring together thousands of people from around the world on 15 March 2015. The spectacular growth of participants in recent years has placed the Zurich Maraton de Barcelona amongst the top European marathons.
Factors such as the climate, the cuisine, and the many cultural attractions offered by the city of Barcelona, and a route that passes through the urban landscape for more than 42km, make it the best way to get to know the city: Litoral zone, Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia, etc. .. are just some of the attractions the race takes runners through.
Sport and leisure come together for this great event, which culminates in a big public celebration. Numerous bands, associations and organisations, co-operate with the organisers to provide runners and spectators a gala atmosphere reminiscent of its Olympic past.
The spectacular start of the race will be held at 8.30am by the Avinguda Maria Cristina, with the Palace of Montjuic as a backdrop. Be seduced by the city!
