Organiser's Description

FAST OR FUN, BUT RUN

It doesn't matter if you come to run to beat your personal best or if your challenge is to finish the race, you will enjoy running in one of the best cities for it.
The Barcelona Half Marathon, also known as the eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona, was certified as the best Half Marathon 2020 in Spain by the IAAF.

The 21,0975 km long route takes the runners from the Arc de Triomf, by the old town to the Plaça Catalunya. From there it arrives at the bottom of the famous Ramblas and along Avenida del Paral·lel. Then it goes through the modernist Eixample district back to the Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella further along the eastern part of Eixample to the Torre Agbar, one of the most striking buildings in Barcelona. The route takes the runners along the Diagonal then goes to the Fòrum and along the beach again at the Parc de la Ciutadella to Arc de Triomf, which is the finishing line. With this route, a very interesting and varied street circuit is marked out.


After the race, you can enjoy a sunny Sunday in Barcelona: Bars, restaurants and even the beach will be waiting for you to complete an incredible experience.


Fast or fun, but run in Barcelona!

Good flat, fast race for anyone seeking a PB. However lacking in atmosphere, not many spectators, music nor bands etc. No one handing out sweets like in the UK! Wasn’t like a festival like runs in the UK no one dressed in fancy dress. All rather serious and elbows at dawn for those sticking to the pacers (which only go up to 2hrs!!!). The people handing out medals weren’t even smiling and said nothing as they passed it to you. Glad I had the opportunity to do it but doubt I’ll be back

Fantastically well-organised event. Managing over 28,000 runners is no mean feat... you were able to choose a slot to pick up your race bib (no queues when we went; friendly volunteers; smooth process) and the email communication was easy to understand and clear. The route was great and all the water stops etc were exactly as described. Drumming bands at different points helped as well! After it was over, the goodies were all fruit - super healthy. I loved it. Hope to come back next year. And even more impressively, the city was back to 'normal' super quick.
