All the biggest races in Barcelona in November

By | 25 October, 2019 | 0 comments

Running stopped being an elite pursuit and became a treasured pastime of the masses a long time ago. And at the same time, Barcelona has become the perfect destination to enjoy a jog or run, thanks to the huge variety of running races and fun runs the city hosts. Popular routes, both for professionals, amateurs, children and those with different levels of ability, are in plenty supply this November.

Carreras Barcelona

The spectacular landscapes of Barcelona and the city’s love for running makes it the perfect place to enjoy some active leisure time when you’re here. Here are just a few of Barcelona’s most popular running events you can enjoy this November.

Races in Barcelona: Women’s Race

On 6 November, the streets of Barcelona will be painted pink as one of the most popular races takes place, the Cursa de la Dona de Barcelona, where runners raise money for breast cancer. The starting gun will be fired on Avenida María Cristina, while the 7.1-kilometre race finishes on Avenida de Rius i Taulet.

One of Barcelona’s oldest races takes place this year on 20 November. The ever popular Cros popular de Sants is organised by runners themselves and includes 4 different ways to enter:

Already in its fourth instalment, besides a new name, the race will incorporate several new features this year, including the new Collserola Great Trail and the Mitja Volta al Parc, which runs for approximately half the trail route.

A race for professionals and amateurs alike, on 27 November, Barcelona will host the 93 Jean Bouin event made up of three races for school children, the general public and veterans and city workers, an open race of 10 kilometres with a shorter 5k race available too.
